Painting Animals for Beginners in Oils

The Mitford Museum

145 Cedar Valley Rd,

Hudson, NC 28638

United States

Join Jan and her dear friend, acclaimed artist Nancy Bass, for a day of painting.

If you have always wanted to try oil painting, this is the class for you! In this class, acclaimed artist Nancy Bass will provide each student a prepared panel with a drawing of their pet along with all the supplies needed for the class. In this fun-filled day you will learn the techniques of oil painting and create a finished painting of your beloved pet. Each artist will be asked to email a good photo of your favorite pet to Nancy at least one week before the start of class.

The class is limited to 10 students and the registration fee of $325 includes your prepared panel, supplies, instruction, a box lunch, and admission to The Mitford Museum. REGISTER HERE

NANCY BASS, whose popular animal paintings are in private collections around the country, created art for our Mitford Christmas ornaments, placemats, mugs, and throw pillows. She’s donating the proceeds of her workshop to The Mitford Museum to support our focus on literacy as well as creative and economic opportunities for young people.
