NEW CLASS ADDED (January 2018)

"Grit" (24x30") oil, Layer and glazed by Todd Bonita
Jan 02- Feb 20, 2018 (9am - 12)  Tuesdays
Brush and Palette Art Center, 105 Post Rd. North Hampton, NH
 8 Weeks (Limit 14)  $360

This indoor class takes place at the Brush and Palette Art Center Tuesday Mornings and aims to simplify oil painting using a traditional layering process.  These classes are for beginners who have never painted before or have some experience but are looking for a simple and focussed understanding of the nuts and bolts oil painting.  Each class begins with a demo where we will explore individual steps from drawing to underpainting to color application.  Design, value, color and creative oil painting techniques and tools will be discussed and demonstrated.  With an understanding of these principles, students will be better equipped to meet the challenges of painting with glazes and layers, and thereby, better able to express themselves as artist.  Syllabus and supply list below.

871 Islington Street (studio #A100). Portsmouth, NH
After exactly ten years in studio #224 at the Button Factory Artist studios, I will be moving to a new art space...Its only one flight down.  I'll be on the first floor of the Button Factory but with a new address entirely.  This is my new studio mate and co-owner of the space, Artist and Architect, Frank Hyer.  We just signed the papers this afternoon and made it official with a dram of single malt scotch.  We will likely host visitors as part of the Button Factory annual open studio event the first Saturday in December...but if we can pull it together, it would be fun to have a studio opening party...check back.
