Large, Colorful Painting with
Paul Alan Bennett


Saturday, April 27 • Sisters Art Works • 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Taught by renowned local painter, Paul Alan Bennett, this class will focus on the simple pleasure of pushing color around. Students will begin by participating in a guided pencil drawing to cover the basics of composition and expression. Bennett will cover techniques on color mixing and working with a brush before setting students loose to complete at least two paintings. To conclude the day, the class will gather to discuss their processes and share their work. 

Bennett attended the Maryland Institute of Art and lived in Greece for six years where he taught art and got a master's degree in Greek History with an emphasis on Greek Art. He's published three collections of his work, including "Hug," "Night Skies," and "Pandemic Portraits” and has painted the stage backdrops for five Bend Opera productions. By his own estimate, Bennett has taught painting to more than 25,000 students over the years. 

Please come dressed to paint and move around! The class will take place in the JAM Studio on the second floor of the Sisters Art Works building. All supplies and lunch will be provided, with gluten-free and vegan options available.

Maximum of 10 participants. Must be 18 or older to enroll; no experience necessary. 

Tuition: $150/person

*Pay-what-you-can pricing available for interested participants.
