Event Details

We had so much fun at Cameron’s painting workshop last week that we are doing it again! Join us for a Paint Night Event at the Gallery with some light refreshments, wine, and art making with your choice of oil OR acrylic paints!

In this fun evening painting workshop, Cameron Schmitz will be teaching participants different approaches to painting abstractly, while focusing on expressive brushwork and creative mark-making techniques. This workshop encourages participants to relax, have fun, and take artistic risks in order to find one’s own unique voice. This painting workshop is great for anyone wanting to explore non-representational painting and an intuitive approach to painting abstractly. The workshop provides a supportive environment for painters both beginning and advanced who wish to take creative risks and discover its exciting results. No painting experience necessary.

Cameron Schmitz, will be giving demonstrations in oil paints, and providing students who purchase materials, oils. However, students who opt to bring their own supplies, can opt to bring acrylics if they prefer. �
$85 for supplies provided ($30 materials fee includes 1 large sheet of Arches oil paper, access to oil paints, painting medium, oil brushes, palette knife, gloves, painting palette, rags and solvent)
$55 for students bringing their own painting materials and supplies
