Tuesday, June 29
from 9am-12:30pm


Paint large! Experience the fun, freedom, and spontaneity of using large inexpensive brushes to create paintings. Using big brushes and water-mixable oil or acrylic paints, full-time artist Joe Gallant will demonstrate and guide you through the steps of creating your own seascape or landscape painting that just might become a focal point in your home or office!

New this year! Learn Joe’s Big Brush technique to create both large and medium-size paintings. You will complete your own oil or acrylic painting during this fun one-day socially-distanced workshop. Joe will provide a reference photo of a scene that will be painted. Suitable for adult beginners, intermediate painters, and past participants in Joe’s workshops. If you have ever felt unsure of yourself when you start a painting, here’s your chance to learn an exciting technique that just might change the way you paint forever!

Students must wear a mask and provide their own supplies -- see list below. Wear clothing to paint in and bring a newspaper, old sheet or tarp to protect your car upholstery from wet paint on the ride home. Students provide their own supplies (see list below), including a mask.

This workshop meets in the Owl Hall on the main level of the Education Wing.

  • WATER MIXABLE oil paints (Winsor & Newton “Artisan” or similar brand, 37 ml or larger), one tube each of red, blue, yellow, green, and white. Select any shade of each, but not olive green. Acrylic paints may be substituted but the results will look different.
