Molly's Turn! Larry has been encouraging me to post photos of the on-going art class I hold in my studio.

When I start with new students I always ask them to become familiar with both the canvas, different size paint brushes and paint, before we attempt a full on painting.  Here are three students and the beginning to almost done process for them! We had such fun!!


Here is Kate Parun's first time playing with paint and canvas.

I feel so lucky to be able to teach Beginning Acrylic Painting here in my studio. On February 27th, I will also be teaching a class from 10:30 to 12:30 on Thursday mornings at Rileystreet Art Supply on 4th street in San Rafael. They have a great space to teach in a warm environment with a much larger space than my studio. I will continue to teach here at my studio but its nice to have a second venue.  Please pass the word to anyone you might know that would like to join us.
