MAY 30 (Previous dates cancelled)
Instructor: Jose Martinez
Join us for the Center’s first Paint & Sip series, guided by Mare Island artist Jose Martinez. Participants in these workshops will enjoy a social evening and a single, guided project replicated by all participants. Teaching will focus on the painting process—breaking down images to their most basic shapes and guiding students step by step. Stencils or outlines may be provided to ensure students can leave with a painting of which they feel proud. Those interested in branching out on their own are welcome to do so.
