Painting Animals with Personality (Oils)


Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday
 March 13, 14 & 15, 2018
9:00 am - 4:00 pm



Learn techniques that can create lifelike
 paintings of animals.
 You will explore choosing an interesting point
 of view, painting fur and feathers without
 obsessing over every detail, making eyes
 look alive, mixing the right colors,
 varying your brushwork for different effects,
 and telling a story with your painting.
