Mary Carole Seminar – Labor Day – 2021

4 Days, 4 paintings! Taught by nationally known artist Mary Carole.

Mary Carole Larson has painted for fifty years and travels nationally— teaching classes across the country.  Her art training included five years studying with American Master artist Everett Raymond Kinstler, who is famous for doing the official Presidential portraits in the White House.

Larson’s teaching style is all about demonstration and explanation.  All students receive close, individual attention as Larson goes from one easel to another.  At one student’s spot she explains the physics of brush strokes.  At another spot she explains how to “turn an edge.”  At another spot she discusses value, tone and color theory.

You will finish each painting during the seminar. The Girl on the Steps is painted in a day and a half, the Red Umbrella is a half day on a textured canvas. You must register for the Girl on the Steps in order to paint the Red Umbrella (no half day registration). Only 15 spaces available, so register now!
