Learn to make the paintings you LOVE in this OPEN STUDIO class with artist and ECFTA Arts Educator Eileen MacArthur.  Eileen will guide you through various exercises and allow for independent working time and individual & group critique.  If there is an artist whose work inspires you, this class will provide guidance on how to emulate their work and incorporate ideas and techniques into your own own work.

Eileen will offer a welcoming and collaborative environment for all skill levels to learn from one another, while developing their own individual art practice.

Week one students will start with some warm-up exercises, make a material list and be asked to shop for their supplies for week 2.

Bring some inspiring artist, IG or Pinterest ideas that you would love to paint!  Materials will be provided for week one.
