Outreach Program

The outreach program at River Gallery School offers one class per week at the Brattleboro Senior Center for anyone interested in pursuing the pleasure of oil painting, whether for the first time or resuming an interest from an earlier time in life. Classes begin with an introduction to Sequencing, a technique developed by Ric Campman of the River Gallery School. This approach begins with direct experience of painting with your fingers that encourages fearless and joyful exploration of visual expression. Participants then follow paths that go in many different directions, generating excitement, pleasure and humor among the artists as they share their struggles and results. Similar meetings take place bi-monthly at The Bradley House and Pine Heights Nursing Home. The pleasure of creative work appears to encourage participants to explore and learn in the company of others in a friendly atmosphere.
