Artist Jane Appleby will lead a three-hour Zoom workshop for anyone interested learning the “37 Stroke and 37 Minute Painting Method.”

Not only does painting in limited strokes and quickly help build skills, but it also brings to light the way an artist prefers to paint. The goal of this fun workshop is not to make a complete painting, but to explore possible ways to paint. Jane will demonstrate the technique in acrylic while discussing the benefits of the exercises. Participants will then be asked to create two paintings using their own still life set up or photo: one 37-stroke piece and one 37-minute piece. Jane will be available to answer questions and offer tips as needed during this time. The group will discuss participants’ pieces and the process in general. If there is additional time, an extra project could be added, or experimentation and discussion can continue after the class over email for interested participants.

Any level of painter is welcome to attend this online class, and participants will need to use their own supplies.
