that the holidays are behind me I can focus on classes again.
am offering oil painting lessons for eight consecutive weeks
for all levels of painters, including those who never picked
up a brush. The weekly lessons will be on Sunday mornings 9am-12noon
at my studio/gallery at 613 Foster Point Road in West Bath beginning
March 3, 2013. The class will be small, so each student will
enjoy individual attention. Attention will be focused on the
proper use of materials, composition, color and most importantly,
how to see like an artist. Hopefully Nina Roth-Wells,
oil painting conservator, will come to give her presentation
on painting conservation for one class.
more information and to reserve one of the limited spaces, contact
me by phone or email: (207) 751-5288 or firstname.lastname@example.org. $235.00 is
required for the eight week course. An $80.00 non-refundable
deposit mailed to: Beth Carlson, 613 Foster Pt. Rd., Bath, Me.
04530, is due by February 17th. The balance is due at the first
class on March 3rd. Materials list is attached below.
