Saturday September 9th
with Robert Pennor

Oil or Acrylics Workshop

'The Wave'

10 am - 4 pm     $80 Lunch included.

Time to learn to "Roll That Wave!" Robert does a great job creating movement and transparency in this painting. Water is difficult...but this is presented well and is easy to learn.

We will be using a 11 x 14 canvas (we have canvas boards for $2 or bring your own) and you may do this in either oil or acrylics. We use odorless mineral spirits as to not offend people. If you need to use our paints they are available for a small fee.

I will fix some sort of a lunch...but if you have special needs you may bring your own. We have a Fridge and Microwave.

This should be a nice subject and fun to do.

Call or email early to reserve your spot
