Acrylic painting at LOLA on Oct. 29
October 18, 2019
Land O’ Lakes Arts (LOLA) is hosting an acrylic painting class with local artist Sue Schurch from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29. In this class, students are to use their imagination to create their own version of a Monarch butterfly.
Each student will receive a 10x12-inch wood plaque (with hanger) that has the wood-burned image ready for paint. Schurch will demonstrate paint application, brush strokes, color mixing and simple shading to complete a painting.
“Even though each person has the same image to work from as a guide, all the paintings turn out so very different,” Schurch said. “Students choose colors they like and use strong or soft brush strokes to give it personality. Each plaque will be unique to the person painting it.”
This class is suitable for adults and costs $55. All materials are supplied and no experience is necessary. Deadline for payment/registration is Tuesday, Oct. 22.
Schurch owns Blossoms Studio in Land O’ Lakes,which she opened in 2013 after relocating from Illinois. Working in acrylic paint, she paints and wood burns on found objects or new wood, all with a Northwoods theme. She enjoys finding old barn wood and antique furniture as surfaces for her work. See Sue on the Northwoods Art Tour in October, and find her work at Moondeer & Friends Gallery in Boulder Junction and a Stone’s Throw Gallery in Bayfield.
