Learn to paint with local artist

Published: Monday, July 15, 2013 5:09 p.m. CDT

Learn how to paint through a series of classes that will teach about perspective, color mixing and composition and will feature oil painting with a palette knife instead of a brush.

Oil Painting For Seniors is a series taught by local artist Jane Swanson. The four-session beginner series includes learning how to paint: The sky, trees and grass, including color mixing; a still water pond with reflections on the water; a barn scene that will teach drawing perspective; and flowers or boats.

After these four session, participants will be able to paint from their own photos.

The classes will be held from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesdays at the Fox Valley Community Center, 1406 Suydam Road in Sandwich.

The cost is $12 for each session that includes $2 to be donated to Fox Valley Older Adult Services.

To register and obtain the list of supplies needed, call Dee Leffler at 815-786-9404.
