Blue Horse Arts Studio will be holding another “Paint Out or IN at Hemingway Pond!”! Landscape artists are invited to paint the winter wetlands outside the studios or stay warmly inside and paint through the large window views. Working with a winter palette is a great way to expand ones painting skills. The “Paint Out or In” is open to anyone interested in landscape painting, whether they are a beginner or a experienced painter looking for new vistas. Blue Horse Arts Instructor, Bridget Grady will be on hand to give beginners a hand or a hot chocolate! Participants should bring their own paints and easels. There will be a limited number of easels available for use at the studio.
Guest Artist Sam D’ Ambruoso will also be giving a free portrait painting demonstration on Saturday, January 28th, 1PM-4PM, at Blue Horse Arts Studio. This is a great opportunity to pick up some pointers in the Alla Prima technique of portrait painting with this popular workshop artist.
