Painting Lessons- A Great Holiday Gift

Bookmark and Share

Virginia Brooks has long been a fixture in the local art community. She is a founder of the Sonoran Art League ’s Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour and will be opening her studio, #39, to visitors during the upcoming tour. Visiting is a wonderful way to learn more about her popular Come Paint With Me lessons.

“Teaching what I love has come very naturally to me. But I wanted to take a very different approach. It’s diffcult to learn in large classes, so I offer private and semi private lessons. We paint together, painting the same subject, and I explain every thing I am doing, step by step. All ages find an encouraging environment at my studio. And my Gift Certificates for lessons are popular seasonal gifts.”

All supplies are included; canvas, paint and brushes. Painters can try oils without having to purchase the materials. And many of them, after having experienced the pleasures of painting in oils, choose to make the permanent switch to that medium.

“I have made wonderful new friends in the process. Painters are invariably fun and creative souls, whether they are beginners or the advanced painter wanting to learn something very specific. The people who paint with me complete a painting in just two sessions and it is a pleasure to watch them grow in skills. Come see what it is all about.”

The Studio Tour runs November 20th to 22nd and again on Thanksgiving weekend, November 27th to the 29th.
