About the Event
This is an all-day painting class for adults taking place on Saturday, November 18 from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Jam Studio, upstairs in the Sisters Art Works building, 204 W. Adams Avenue. There is a chair lift to assist those who need it with getting to the second floor; the building is not equipped with an elevator.
Renowned painter Paul Alan Bennett will teach this class. Students will work with water-based tempera paints on a 3' x 3' sheet of tar paper. This paper's surface takes the paint very well. All supplies will be provided.
Paul attended the Maryland Institute of Art and lived in Greece for 6 years where he taught art and got a master's degree in Greek History with an emphasis on Greek Art. He's published three collections of his work, including "HUG," "Night Skies," and "Pandemic Portraits."
By his own estimate, Paul has taught this kind of painting to more than 25,000 students over the years! Participants should come dressed to paint and move around; wear an apron if you'd like! Lunch will be provided (with GF and vegan options).
Recommended tuition is $150 and this class is being offered with Pay What You Can pricing to help eliminate financial barriers for participants.
Refunds will be offered only if class is cancelled by SFF.
