FLC Seniors Brushstrokes

Brushstrokes is an art group and we offer classes in fine-art painting Monday through Friday in watercolor and acrylic and oil. There are instruction classes (with a teacher) and studio classes (self-directed). Artists' abilities range from 'some experience' to 'intermediate'.

"I used to draw and paint 30 years ago and I'd love to get back to it again." A student in an Instruction class

"I enjoy painting with others to see what they are doing and I get inspiration to try new approaches." An experienced artist in a Studio class

I have learned so much from my instructor about all aspects of creating a painting and I'm having lots of fun - you are awesome!! A student in an Instruction class

We hold two twelve-week sessions: one in the Fall (September-November/December) and one in the Winter (January-March). The schedule of classes is in the table below. Our 12 weeks of classes are the best deal in town so join us and you get to learn lots and express your inner artist!

Classes are limited in size to 10 or 11 people in order to provide room to paint and to facilitate personal attention from the instructor. Cost: $230 per 12-week session, 3 hrs per week with Instructor  and $95 per 12-week session, 3 hrs per week for Studio (no teacher) .

We hold an Art Show & Sale every year which gives our members the opportunity to display and sell their artwork. Our show this year was in November.
