In this class we will have a fun session on painting your pets or favorite animal. Painters take Ellen’s workshops because she helps them learn and loosen up in a relaxed and fun classroom atmosphere. You will work at your own level, on subject matter of your choice. Diederich will provide a wealth of information through multiple demonstrations, discussions and personal assistance. There will be a strong emphasis on the power of the basics, particularly shapes, color and value.
