Events 20th June 2020



Jean Cauthen learned long ago through her own artist’s journey that a wonderful route to learning to paint (or painting better) is to work with simple objects as subject matter.  Once those principles are learned, we can apply them to any subject from still life to landscape.
This is the perfect class for the near beginner or more advanced painter who wants to loosen up and explore the expressive potential of your paint brush!
Complete a small everyday object painting with a step by step approach that will stay with you long after the paint is dry!
Jean is known for her positive approach to learning and an ability to reach students whatever their current level of skill.
All supplies are included, just be sure to bring a good ole’ sense of fun!
