Free Event – Registration Required 

Here in the mountains, we are fortunate to live day to day in a landscape that can be at once breathtaking and something easily taken for granted. Most of us have our favorite views, whether this is taking in the vastness from the top of Whiteside or enjoying the Chattooga from the Iron Bridge. In this class we will capture the essence of your favorite spot in a step by step guided painting experience.

Cath Connolly Hudson will lead you through a simple but detailed process as you learn how to mix and apply paint to the canvas. Using a photo reference, you will learn the basic steps to build a painting and become familiar with using and mixing paint and mediums. Cath will guide you in simple techniques to copy the image to the canvas with expressive brush strokes.

During the four sessions we will use a grid system to build the basic composition, learn to mix colors, use different mediums to create paint texture, understand brush techniques, and finally create a finished painting of your favorite mountain landscape.

You don’t need any experience with painting, just a desire to create!

The workshop is sponsored by The Bascom and The Village Green bringing local artist, Cath Connolly Hudson to the Village Green to teach this class. Cath is known for her patient and supportive teaching approach. This free community opportunity will fill up fast. There are ten seats available.
