Attendees with little or no painting experience were given step by step instruction and ended the afternoon with a completed painting! The charge was $40 for the 3 hour (plus) event, and participants really had a good time.

OUR SECOND “PAINT IT AND TAKE IT” is scheduled for JANUARY 10TH, 2015 and the instructor will be well known oil painter LAURA WAMBSGANS who has already done a very successful workshop for MAN. This event will fill up fast with space limited to 20 participants, so early registration is encouraged. Adults only! You can register for this event at the Gallery (909-744-8450).
