Award-winning artist JoAnn Swearingen will lead an intermediate level “Oil Painting for Fun” workshop Saturday, October 11, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Carriage Factory Art Gallery, 128 E. Sixth St., Newton.
Swearingen will share from her extensive experience and teach about values, shapes and color notes. Students in the class will learn about warm/cool colors and use that knowledge as a tool in painting.
Swearingen’s own work is representational with a painterly touch. She paints landscapes, still life and some portraiture. Her work is featured in galleries and private collections and is on display at Carriage Factory Art Gallery.
Class size is limited. Fee for the six-hour class is $75.00 per person. For a supply list and to register, call the gallery at 316-284-2749
