i'm excited about this new venture.
it's definitely keeping me busy right now getting things together for the start of it all. i'll keep you posted with upcoming images. i'm having lots of fun with researching and finding images that would be fun to paint. some are vintage, some are local to oregon, some are just pretty and things that i think people would enjoy hanging on their walls or giving as gifts. what's great is that you can finish a painting in one session...so you can just take the one class, or keep taking classes on a regular basis to get more experience and try different techniques or attempt different images. Or take more than one class to just be with like minded people...that in itself is sooo fun. Each class is $25. There is a grumbacher paint kit in the store that has the basic paints, paintbrushes, and canvas panels to get started. Each catagory (floral, still life, landscape, seascape) has a couple of extra paints that you can get separately to make mixing a little quicker and to broaden your palette. You can use your michaels coupon for the kit. you can even clip other coupons, like joannes, and use those in your michaels stores!
