News from the Studio
Everyone is welcome here at Caprice Fine Art & Co Studio Gallery…even goats! To start the new year we welcomed Negumsu from Vahana Goats to the Studio. While she was quite mesmerized by the bright colors on the large canvases, I am really not sure exactly what she thought of my paintings. I think she is smiling? Oliver the cat really enjoyed her visit.
At the beginning of every year I ponder plans for the upcoming year. The future looks bright here at Caprice Fine Art & Co Inc. My teaching will certainly be a big focus as that is one place where I have truly found my passion! I love to talk about art so what could be better? I am also looking forward to spending many days sitting at the laptop in the Studio. I have a big writing project underway but it will be a while before I can share more details on this project. Of course, I am in the process of finishing off current paintings and planning new ones. I have a large stack of blank canvases next to my easel that are patiently waiting for their turn.
I am excitedly preparing for my upcoming spring ‘Painting in Oils’ art lessons that will be held at Centre 64 Art Gallery. The spring classes will run for a total of 10 weeks, as previous students felt that 6 weeks simply was not long enough! They will take place on Thursday evenings from 6:30-9:00 beginning on March 22 and ending May 24. There will also be Sunday afternoon classes at 12:30-3:00, beginning on March 18 and ending May 27. The price for 10 weeks of instruction will be $275. I will begin taking registration for both sets of classes on February 1. There will be more information in the next newsletter.
Throughout the winter I am continuing to offer mini art lessons here at the Studio Gallery. The mini lessons have become very popular so I may be adding a third class each week. Currently they run on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Each class is limited to 4 students and the cost is $25/class. You are welcome to join us for as few or as many lessons as you would like. To date, they have been a good success! Please send me an email if you would like to register.
