CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

Instruction Classes

Instruction classes are for artists who want expert guidance for their own paintings and/or to participate in class projects. The instructor circulates equitably to assist each person. If the instructor feels it is beneficial to the class, they will give talks, group projects, or demonstrations on various art principles and techniques but these classes do not necessarily give step by step formal teaching. Instruction classes are suited for artists who have some experience with painting and/or drawing but, if you are a beginner, most of our classes can accommodate you so please let us know.

Beginner to advanced artists who would like to learn and grow in their painting skills will enjoy these classes.  All participants must be a current member of the FLC Seniors Club.

Studio Classes

Studio classes are for artists who can work independently on their own painting projects without an instructor.  All three types of media may be used - acrylic, oil, and watercolor.  Artists who like to get together to paint and share ideas in a social setting will enjoy these classes.  All participants must be a current member of FLC Seniors Club.
