March 7:  Helen Frankenthaler was one of the most influential abstract artists of the mid-20th century.   Following her “soak-stain” technique known as Color Field Painting, we will explore and celebrate the joy of pure color!

March 14: Georgia O'Keefe is famous for paintings that fill the entire canvas and extend past the edges. She often painted flowers so large and up close you'd feel like you were inside of them!  We will explore O'Keefe's use of scale, background and color.


March 21:  Ellen Wilson was an American Impressionist and wife of President Woodrow Wilson!  We will learn about Impressionism by observing her use of light, color, and composition.                      


March 28: Frida Kahlo was a Mexican artist known for her bold self-portraits. We will create our own "selfies" inspired by her use of bold and vibrant color.

Classes canceled in March will be rescheduled as soon as we are able.  If you paid for classes in advance, payments will be applied to the classes of your choice.
