THERE'S MORE: We are having a cookout after we paint! Bernie and Tami will provide the hot dogs and buns and those coming can bring a side dish and drinks.
What the heck is OOPS and how do I join the FUN?
There are plenty of beautiful trees and homes at and around Bernie's house for the landscape painters... BUT... we will have a live model who will pose for us outside in natural light from 12:30-4pm. Bernie will share what he learned at the John Ebersberger workshop he attended this summer. John was a student of Henry Henshe at the Cape Cod School of Art. Henshe was a student of Charles Hawthorne... founder of the school. Bernie will work in the Cape Cod style of doing a "mudhead" but artists can paint in any style they'd like. If you choose to paint a mudhead you will need plenty of color, palette knives, and a stiff support. If you choose to paint the model we are asking for a donation for their service.

Newbies welcome... all mediums and skill levels... simply show up with your gear and be prepared to have fun!
No worries... there are NO art-snobs in our group!
Just bring a side dish and fellowship with us at the cook out too!
