Featured Courses

  • Birch Tree Resist Paintings

    Picture your favorite season. What do you see? Colorful leaves cascading from the trees, or buckets of snow falling from the dark sky. Learn how to paint the perfect woodland scene, featuring birch trees and accompanying leaves, using a few simple techniques and materials. Participants will be guided, step-by step, through the painting process, and will produce a beautiful piece that is sure to be the talk of your next Zoom gathering. Prior to being led through the birch tree painting process, participants will be introduced to some art terms and techniques related to this project. Friends and family will be impressed by everything you learn, and create in this one-time nature-themed art class! This class will take place over Zoom. Kits available for purchase for $10.00. If you do not purchase a kit, a supply list will be emailed to you.
