Announcing Next Group Painting Class, February 17, 2018.
You can bring a painting that you had already started and your supply. We can paint it together! Or paint the following paint:
“House in the Island of North Carolina“. This painting was created for the painting classes, is a simple and charming painting for a person that is starting to paint and wants to learn about the ocean, reflections of a boat sailing and most important the little house in the cliff of the sand dunes.
