Back by popular demand! Alla prima portrait painting of downtown Brattleboro merchants continues after hours from 6-8:30 pm in the Main Street Studio. BYO gear ($20) or oil paints, solvents and supports are available on location ($40). Shopkeepers are asked to "come as they are or would like to be portrayed", so we never quite know what we're in for until they arrive. It's a tall challenge for any painter but a lot of fun too. This class is especially recommended for those with some proficiency with oil paint and life drawing. If you are interested in modeling or know a Brattleboro merchant that is, please call or email us with the info.

Wednesday, 6 – 8:30 pm

Drop-in fee: $40 per class  OR  $20 per class using your own materials.
