Demo Painting for TVOR

The demonstration painting from The Village at Orchard Ridge class is finally complete. (Here is an earlier look at this painting.)  Since we only meet 2 Fridays per month it takes a little longer to complete these.  And I want to be sure the students get their painting to the place they want it to be before we call it done.  They all did great!

The demonstration was scheduled to help some of the residents see just how easy it can be to start painting.  It was a nice evening with a good turn out and lots of great questions.  I am a firm believer that anyone who wants to learn to  paint can!  The only thing needed is the desire.  Classes are available in Front Royal on Wednesday and Thursday at The Studio.  Check out the calendar here and come join in the fun.
