Paint a Pittsburgh landscape with your mother on Mother's Day! How fun! You can either bring a photo of a scene you would like to create, or there will be photos of Pittsburgh on hand to work from.
You don't have to have any experience to participate, just a willingness to have fun during the creative process. The class is geared toward folks 18 and older, but exceptions can be made.
I will bring a couple light snacks and drinks. We will take an intermission break and people are free to take breaks whenever they want. If you want to bring food yourself that is totally fine.
The class teaches students how to use just two colors (complimentary colors) to create vibrant scenes of The Steel City. The "complimentary color technique" was invented by local artist Ryan Ian McCormick. He created this approach due to his colorblindness and inability to see "in-between colors." So, come out and learn this new, and unique way to paint landscapes of Pittsburgh!
The Mother's Day class will utilize the compliment colors of purple and yellow.
One ticket includes mom and anyone else you wants to paint with her. Included in the price are professional-grade brushes and acrylic paint to use, professional instruction, and a 14" x 18" canvas to take home. There will be an open studio on July 6th at Assemble, free to anyone taking the class, to continue work. Also, there will be a reception on August 24th, at Assemble Art Gallery, for anyone who participated in the class to display their work.
The class starts promptly at 10 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m.
