Terry Boutelle, Instructor
Eliot School

For experienced and beginning painters who want to work on assigned projects or on their own projects with guidance and feedback. Newcomers will learn about color and composition and how to begin a painting. Experienced painters will find ways to infuse their process with new vigor and be challenged to experiment with the edges of their comfort zone.  A live model or still life will be provided for each class. Registration is open, so pass the word to friends and artists.  I’m looking forward to this new time slot.
