Learn to Paint on Wood - 2 Projects in 1 Workshop with Sue Schurch
Time & Location
About the Event
Paint your own version of this hummingbird lazy susan, complete with base and turn table machanism, and Tuscan Wine Country using your imagination. Each student will receive a 12" pine round and 10" x 12" pine plaque (with hanger) that already has the burned image ready to paint. These will be two different classes on consecutive days, all included in this workshop. Sue will demonstrate paint application, brush strokes, color mizing, and simple shading to complete the projects.
Sue, "Even though each person has the same image to work from as a guide, all the paintings turn out so very different. Students are choosing colors they like and using strong or soft brush strokes to give it personality, each piece will be unique as the person painting it."
No experience needed. Lazy Susan already assembled. All materials supplied. Dress for a fun mess!
