On Saturday, September 7th, come explore the joy of creating a landscape painting in an informal and relaxed group setting at the Jimmie O. Rector Community Center in Whitesboro. This class is for anyone 16 years or older that would like to learn about painting with oils or acrylics, or those who have some experience and would like to improve their skills and knowledge. The class size will be limited to 12, so each person can receive personalized coaching. Artist/instructor Mike Craig paints a wide variety of subject matter in oils, which you can examine further on his website, He was the featured artist at Whitesboro’s 2019 Shauney P. Lucas Community Art Show.

In this class you will learn about the materials and terminology of painting while having fun creating a small landscape painting in just a few hours. The group will discuss the elements that help create an attractive composition. Mike will also share what he has learned about mixing paint colors and how to create the illusion of depth in a scene.

The one-day class will cost $45. If you are a complete beginner and would rather not search for the supplies needed, you can pay an additional $50, and your necessary supplies will be provided for your permanent use. These supplies will include a 10-tube set of oil paints, oil thinning medium, several brushes, a palette knife, 11×14 canvas and a table-top easel. Mike will be painting in oils and the materials provided will be for oil painting, but if you have your own acrylic materials and would prefer to paint in that medium, you are welcome to do so in the class.

Registration is currently open and will be taken until Wed, Sep 4th or until all 12 spaces are filled. Cash or check (made out to Michael Craig) are accepted. Participants will need to bring a lunch that day. Coffee and bottled water will be provided. If you have questions about the class, you can email Mike at .
The Community Center is located at 400 Wilson St., Whitesboro, TX 76273. Phone: (903) 564-5964
