Eliot School
24 Eliot Street

My fall and winter Acrylic Painting classes at the Eliot School are on Friday evenings this fall from 6:30 to 9:30pm. Come unwind after a long week, with painting and refreshments. Or come to tackle one more challenge before the week’s end. Either way, the mood will be light, the painting will be challenging, and the snacks will be enticing. Registration is open, so pass the word to friends and artists. I’m looking forward to this new time slot.

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.
