Painting a Vintage Camper

Painting in the Park

General Butler State Park approached me about teaching painting classes several months ago.
I've been trying to to get this off the ground,
and to be honest it hasn't been easy.

However, this painting of a vintage camper must have struck a nerve because we had 6 people come and take the class.

I love teaching beginners because it is so fun to see their eyes light up as they realize,
"Hey, I can do this"!

General Butler State Park has a beautiful mezzanine with a fabulous view and that's where we had our class.
It was very inspiring.

 Everyone was very dialed in as they put their own personality
 in their paintings.
 It's always so interesting to see how
 everyone develops their own style
 Don't mind my thumb in the way.  Sorry about that.
We already got out sky in and 
were working on mountains here.

Here's a very short video I took during the class.

(Please excuse the background noise.  A family reunion group took over part of the mezzanine and were very glad to see each other.

Thanks for stopping by today and give my fellow painters some love in the comments.

Let's paint together real soon.

Art in the Park

July 20 I'll be teaching 2 painting classes to anyone who would like to paint along with me.

This will be the children class
10-11:30 a.m. $20 ea.
Class will be held in the Mezzanine in the Lodge
at General Butler State Park,
Carrollton, KY.

This fun painting is on a 10" x 8" canvas panel.
I provide all supplies. 
I'd appreciate a heads up if you'd like to take this class so I know about how many to prepare for.  
Call me at 502-523-0663 and leave a message and I'll get back to you.

This fun painting will be perfect for all you campers out there to paint to decorate your own camper.  You can paint it in colors you prefer.  It's an 8" x 10" canvas panel and as always I provide all supplies for you to complete this painting.  It's from noon-2 p.m. July 20, $20 ea.

This will be lots of fun for you to paint and add your name in the sky or on the camper.  You'll learn a few art concepts along the way.  Call me at 502-523-0663 to reserve your spot.  Leave a message and I'll get back to you.  

Both of these paintings are simple yet fun and you can get as creative as you want with them.
