BASIC'S OF PAINTING
April 6, 2021
6:00 pm start
Event Info: Join us for this unique learning opportunity. For those who want to take painting to another level or just learn some everyday basics. We will not be painting an actual painting but we will discuss the basics of all painting. Examples will be show. Supplies are not required.
Only 10 people will be able to attend this class each time so as to allow lots of time for interaction and one-on-one discussions.
This will be a virtual event, you will be able to see Kathy Johnston teach you live. You will also be able to ask question via ZOOM live during the event if you have any questions or problems.
Upon signup you will be emailed a questionnaire so we can find out what you hope to learn at this event and to ask questions ahead of time so we are prepared. We will then partially tailor the class to the questionnaire results. No two classes will be the exact same.
Supplies Required: You do not need any supplies for the event other than a pen and paper to take notes. We will not actually be painting but if you wish to paint and try some of the examples during the class live then you are welcome to. Just bring any brushes or colours you want. It is recommended that you use artist paper or heavy paper for this practice painting you do not need a canvas.
