Hi Everyone,


Here is the class schedule through August.


Just a reminder that the class times are now 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. However, the 1:00 pm end time will vary, depending on the painting and pace of the class.


We will take a short break during class so bring a snack if you'd like. Water, coffee and tea are provided. Also, there is a small refridgerator if you need to keep anything cold. Weather permitting we can have our break on the new deck.

With the mask mandate and social gathering restrictions lifted in NYS the classes will go back to pre-pandemic normal. Class size will increase and masks will no longer be required.


If you've registered for a class and are unable to attend please let me know as soon as possible so I can release your spot to someone else.

Artist Tip: 


    The best way to improve your skills is by practicing.   Take an old painting from your reject pile (we all have one) and cover it with Acrylic paint.  I usually use white gesso but any color will do.  Fill up the canvas with trees, bushes, clouds, mountains or any other element you'd like to improve on.  When the canvas is full scrape it off and practice again.  I guarantee it will be worth the effort when you're ready to do your next painting.

Stay well, stay safe, and if you haven't already                          GET VACCINATED!!!
