June Classes and events
Fill your days learning to paint the still life with
Crimson Radishes, Sarah Sedwick
instruction from Eugene, Oregon-based painter, Sarah Sedwick. Sarah is featured in the newly released book,
Daily Painting by Carol Marine.
Sarah will share her knowledge about Daily Painting and how you can use this process to practice, improve and sell your work. 


Sarah will focus on the still life as a tool to expand your painting practice. Working in oils, you will delve into color, composition, and brushwork, exploring traditional subjects and some non-traditional ones, in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Stages of the painting process will be demonstrated with individual instruction and critique along the way. Ideal for students of all levels who are comfortable with oil paints. Prior to the workshop, Sarah will be offering a Demo ( #127, $10 tuition). Don't miss these two opportunities to learn from Sarah Sedwick.
