Sisters artist to teach painting class
Last updated 10/24/2023 at 10:41am
Sisters Folk Festival (SFF) will host an all-day painting class with renowned local painter Paul Alan Bennett on Saturday, November 18 at Sisters Art Works. Registration opens on Wednesday, October 25 at 10 a.m. at https://aftontickets.com/PaintWithPaul and is limited to 10 people. Participants must be 18 or older to enroll.
Bennett attended the Maryland Institute of Art and lived in Greece for six years, where he taught art and got a master's degree in Greek history with an emphasis on Greek art. He's published three collections of his work, including "HUG," "Night Skies," and "Pandemic Portraits." By his own estimate, Bennett has taught this kind of painting to more than 25,000 students over the years.
Participants will work with water-based tempera paints on a three-foot-by-three-foot sheet of tar paper. Students should come dressed to paint and move around. Class will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the JAM studio on the second floor of the Sisters Art Works building. All supplies and lunch will be provided (with gluten-free and vegan options).
The recommended tuition for the class is $150/person. SFF will offer pay-what-you-can pricing to help eliminate financial barriers. For more information, visit http://www.sistersfolkfestival.org/learn-to-paint-with-paul-alan-bennett.
