Painting with Lisa
Instructor: Lisa DePinto
Online class
Art is an opening, and through the magic of Zoom we’ll explore your unique artistic vision and open up to seeing the beauty of the everyday, channeling our creative energy onto canvas. Our classes will function the same as they would in person and include demonstrations as well as time to share and discuss each other’s work. Together we’ll also study the work of contemporary artists and old masters. We’ll make the most of being homebound and learn to see our interiors—something as simple as your kitchen sink or intricate as a bouquet of flowers—through fresh, artistic eyes. Feel free to work from a personal arrangement of beloved pieces in your home or directly from a photograph if you prefer. Whatever you choose, you’ll receive plenty of instruction and encouragement along the way.
