Saxtons River Art Guild To Offer Painting Class

On September 26 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the United Church in Bellows Falls, the Saxtons River Art Guild will be presenting a class on "Painting with Water Soluble Oil" by Jay Doucette of Charlestown, NH.

The class will consist of a demonstration in the morning, including showing how to prepare the surface, start the painting, as well as finishing the painting.

The artist will show all phases of how to handle water soluble oils, including technique, mixing colors, brushes and mediums.

Water soluble oil is oil based, but can be mixed with water or medium, and only water is needed for clean up.

It is an exciting new medium with minimum cost to get started.

If you don't have water soluble oils, there will be plenty for you to try out and use, so you don't have to make a large investment.

Jay Doucette attended Vesper George School of Art in Boston, as well as the Museum School, Boston, and the Copley Society for figure drawing.

His paintings are currently on display at Gallery North Star in Grafton.

For more information call Kathy Waryas at 463-9456 to sign up for the class and to get a materials list.
