Class Schedule and Registration

Gini Deaton teaches oil painting in the wet-on-wet style made famous by PBS TV artists. This method of wet into wet, or alla prima painting has been around for centuries and is used by artists worldwide. As a certified instructor, she says, “Anyone can learn to paint with this method of step by step demonstration and one on one instruction”. Take home a finished painting at the end of the class! Even first time painters are surprised at how well they do.
