Melody is a fine art instructor in oil, watercolor and acrylics, teaching landscape, still-life painting and botanical illustrations through workshops in Connecticut and worldwide. Her interest in the arts has also led to her involvement in many art associations, managing art exhibits, membership and sponsor drives and exhibit calendar events.
Theorem Painting Class Details: Artsy at heart or new to the easel; it’s time to paint. Explore your creativity in a whole new way. Enjoy the company of friends in this relaxed, entertaining Theorem Painting Workshop. There couldn’t be a faster and easier way to learn how to paint than using this early 19th century technique of painting. You will learn how to use paint, color and how to use value in creating a realistic painting of flowers and fruit. Using Melody’s templates and painting materials, you will create a finished painting (or 2) to frame or give as gifts.
