Open Paint and Carol Arnold Critique – Mar 20 2018

If you’re interested in painting, drawing, and illustrating, we have the perfect evening for you! There’s going to be music, wine, laughter, creativity, and of course painting and drawing!

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018
6:30pm – 9pm

BVAA Alternatives Uxbridge Community Gallery
5 South Main Street
Uxbridge, MA 01569

This is an open paint session where all styles of art are warmly welcome. Whether you’re 12 or 102, whether you’re a new beginner or a seasoned artist, we would love to have you. It’s completely free to participate in the open paint. You can bring your own paints or we’ll have watercolors to share.

In addition to the open paint, we have a special treat!

Carol Arnold, a member of Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik’s Putney Painters, will provide detailed suggestions on ways in which to bring your work to the next level! She is kind, patient, and incredibly supportive. You can bring in 2-3 pieces of work in progress for a learning critique. This is open to the public! There is a $5 fee to have your works reviewed.

We have a private conference room available so you can have your in-depth discussion with Carol in private.

There is a TON of free parking immediately next to this building. It is fully and easily handicapped accessible.
