Join us for an open-studio style painting session at the Arboretum, with all materials provided. An instructor will be present to answer questions and offer suggestions throughout the session.  The oil paints are professionally formulated and imported.  They are water-soluble; giving off no harmful fumes, are safer and clean-up is easier.  Students may use fusion painting which is a process of using acrylic (which dries in 15 minutes) to paint the background and overlaying oil on top (which dries in 4-6 days).  The student will be using professional canvases and special brushes. This class is best appropriate for people with some painting experience who wish to paint in the company of others at the beautiful arboretum.

Coached by Ron Pettie.
