All ages are welcome and adults are encouraged to bring children from their families; children must be accompanied by a grandparent, parent, teen or other adult. In these workshops beginners and intermediate painters paint from seasonal still lifes, objects, and photos. Attendees can learn basic techniques or just hang out and paint with others.

The March class will focus on chicks, lambs, nests, and seasonal still lifes of local foliage and color inspired by Spring. In April attendees can celebrate Earth Day with Mother Nature’s bounty and paint local foliage, birds, bugs, flowers, maps, and more. The theme of the May class will be the new growth of Spring, with flowers, birds, and bees, alongside special Memorial Day reference pictures.
