Participants will paint the same subject as Chuck, step-by-step, loosely or tightly depending on their personal painting style. Complexity of composition and technique increases as the sessions progress through the summer. Sign up for one Saturday session or all of them. There is a limit of 10 participants per session. Each session is limited to four hours with a lunch break (brown bag or lunch next door at Gretchen's). Fee: $40 per session.
