For both my acrylic painting workshops this past weekend we used my photo from Keenebunkport, Maine sea coast as a reference for our lessons. Three students at the Hadley Michaels and two from the West Springfield Michaels love the picture and did great on their paintings! One was a mother Gwen who regularly brought her teenage daughter Grace and decided to give it a try herself. Also, an 83 year old lady Nancy who hasn't painted in 3 years wanted very much to do a seascape. She thoroughly enjoyed it!
I had a great time teaching at Creative Arts Center in the Rinnova Building in Westfield yesterday. There were six students each developing their own different acrylic painting. They had me "hopping" going from student to student with suggestions for their painting. A couple of them finished their paintings and are ready to start a new one. They are a great group and we all had a great time. There is no pressure and each paints at their own pace. The classes are ongoing Tuesday nights 6-8 pm and beginners are welcome! The picture below was taken a few years ago at a class. Please see www.westfieldonweekends.com and click on the creative arts center to see details on how to register for a class!
