Painting Spotlight - Snowscapes


WINTER IS COMING! Actually, it’s already here… which is why we are fully embracing it. I’m a big fan of moving artwork around and hanging pieces on rotation, especially seasonally. I also think that painting your surroundings, through observation, is an amazing way to learn. Don’t worry, we will not be painting outside.

As always, there is no experience necessary. I think these classes are a great way to get started and explore. I always like to pick an inspiring reference, but if you would prefer to bring your own, that’s great too! Keep in mind we are focusing on painting snow and light, so please bring a reference that reflects that.

Ages: 16 years and up - no experience necessary!

Materials: All supplies are included. Please bring a few printed references to choose from if you're not choosing from ours. 

Instructor: Vanessa Frost

As a full-time artist and owner of MUSEjar, Vanessa finds inspiration and joy in teaching art. Art is a language that is often forgotten about and it's amazing what happens once it's tapped into. Her background is fine art and film production, with a degree from The University of Vermont. She loves mixed media and currently works mainly with acrylics, but she is constantly exploring and experimenting with all other mediums.

NOTE: All classes require a minimum number of students to run. Please sign up in advance to help avoid cancellation due to low registration. In the case of a cancellation you will be notified prior and receive a full refund. Please read our class policies.
