Introduction to Palette Knife Painting Classes  Put down the brush and pick up a palette knife! For 4, 1 1/2 hour sessions, we will focus on the techniques of using only a palette knife to paint oil paintings. Palette knife painting offers a unique look--thick texture, pure colors, and expressive style. No turpentine or other solvents needed. 4 week class on Tuesdays at 2pm (March 9, 16, 23, 30) Ann Gorbett is an award winning artist who paints exclusively with a palette knife. The thick, painterly, yet highly detailed strokes of color are trademarks of her style.  This will be held via zoom and space is limited.  You must register to attend.  Email or call the franklin senior center to register.  Art kits with all supplies will be available for pick up to registered participants.  A fee of $20 total for all 4 classes is being charged to defray the cost of materials. If you cannot afford this please ask about our available scholarship.  Space is limited so sign up today!
