Event Details:

Saturday, June 9th 2018 from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Instructor: Donna Ebert
Ages: 16+
Level: absolute beginner to advanced painters welcome 

Donna Ebert specializes in decorative painting, and can coach anyone through the process of creating this spring/ summer inspired painting. 

Learn techniques that will enhance your decorative and fine art painting abilities. How to quickly sketch and paint leaves and flowers, how create the illusion of depth with highlight and shadow, and how to make your paintbrushes "do the work for you." You'll be amazed at how easy it is to create all the delicate floral shapes on this painting with little effort. Once Donna demonstrates where to place highlights and shadows, you'll be able to paint foliage with ease.

We will be using acrylic paints reclaimed palette wood lovingly deconstructed, cut and sanded to perfection by Donna's husband Steve in their shared home studio. Each student will go home with a finished topiary painting that would make a lovely gift or addition to your home. The unique, long slim format of this painting is also easier to display than a larger traditional canvas. 

Many of Donna's previous students have stated that what sets her apart from other beginning or step-by-step acrylic painting instructors is her ability guide students to an end product they are actually proud to hang in their homes. Donna makes a focused effort to help students learn techniques that they will be able to use again and again in future paintings. All her classes are designed to instruct and instill long-term painting skills in a fun and relaxed studio setting.

Donna promises to make it "easy-peasy." All materials and step-by-step instructions will be provided. Wear comfortable old clothing, something you won’t mind if a little paint happens to jump on.
