Workshop: Wildflowers by Palette Knife and Paper Towels
FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 6-8:30 PM
Location: Amanda Evanston Freund Studio and Gallery
1310A Chicago Ave, Evanston IL 60201
Have you ever wanted to take a painting class but you don't know how to hold a brush? No problem - this class is brush free!
Together, we will spend a lovely evening creating a pastoral landscape of wildflowers. For the example, I used poppies. You could do daisies. Or bluebells. Or thistles. Or do all of the above. Who knows, someone might get crazy and paint buttercups!?! LET'S GO WILD BABY.
Niftiest part of this class is there will be no brushes involved. I find that removing brushes neutralizes a lot of the anxiety some students have when it comes to approaching paint. If you find yourself saying things like, "I'm just not artistic!" *THIS* is the class for you. It'll also work for seasoned creatives looking for a fun experience in a supportive, mess-friendly environment. At the end of the night you'll go away with a 16x20 finishes canvas and a whole new bag of creative tricks. Hope you can make it!
Space is limited. No place-holding reservations, please.
- Wear paint-friendly clothing.
- Please arrive on time or slightly early: 1310A Chicago Ave, Evanston Illinois, 60201.
- Champagne and snacks will be served.
What about kids? These classes take place in a working art studio. There are many items in here that are sharp, wet, and/or poisonous. For their safety, and my insurance guy’s sanity, I kindly request children stay out of the studio area unless specifically invited. Children are always welcome in the front gallery area, and there will be occasional children’s art workshops in the future. In the meantime, I'm happy to recommend any of the many places in Evanston already offering art courses for young artists. Thank you for understanding!
