INDIAN SHORES – The town of Indian Shores offers, as part of its recreational program, oil painting for beginners and intermediates.
The class is continuous and meets Thursdays, 1 to 3:30 p.m., in the community room of the Indian Shores Municipal Building, 19305 Gulf Blvd., Indian Shores.
New students begin with basic fundamentals and move toward working independently from their own photographs or subject matter. More experienced painters share with others and are glad to offer tips and help. Class time consists of demos, instructional time, painting time, and critiques. The class is kept to a small number so that the instructor can work with each student individually.
Students will learn about paints, brushes, color mixing, composition, and all of the basics needed to form a foundation in traditional oil painting. Individual creativity is emphasized.
No membership is necessary. The instructor is Betsy Schoepf of Indian Rocks Beach. She has been painting for over 40 years and particularly enjoys both still life and beach scenes of children with sand and bucket, water and sky.
