Elk Rapids: Popular northern Michigan artist Charles Murphy will be teaching acrylic painting classes at the Twisted Fish Gallery beginning Thursday, September 14. Classes will run for six weeks and participants of all skill levels are welcome. Each class builds on the previous week’s, but students will not be left behind should they not be able to attend all six.
“You simply cannot go wrong with a painting class from Charles Murphy,” says Lynn Streit, the gallery’s community liaison.
“From his more representational landscapes to his choice of color, texture, and scope of his more abstract work, Charles will help you explore the style that best suits your vision of the canvas and perhaps even push you from your comfort zone to new artistic territory,” Streit adds.
The two hour class begins September 14 and will run from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. on Thursdays in the Cottage Gallery. Registrants should bring the following supplies:
- Liquid acrylic paint, bottles or tubes
- Synthetic bristle brushes, rounds & flats
- Water bucket
- Color mixing palette
- Paper towels
- Spray Bottle
- H8 pencil
- Bottle of matte or gloss acrylic medium
- Bottle or jar of acrylic gesso
- Plastic food wrap
- Stretched, primed canvas or painting panels: not to exceed 20”x24” in size
- Waxed paper
The cost is $45 per class and seating is limited. Please call to confirm spot and arrange payment. Participants taking the full six-week course preferred, but not required.
