(By Mitch Kahn)

A tweaking of the class schedule at Salmagundi has been in the planning stages for quite a while and officially launches this week with two new classes added. The former Monday class has been folded into the Wednesday class.

SpencerNEW! Elizabeth Spencer: Painting
Thursdays 9am-12pm

Beginning to accomplished students are invited to explore the fundamentals of drawing, design, color and painting techniques in order to enhance their own means of person expression. Through individual attention and demonstrations you will be encouraged to capture the color of light and vitality in your works whether they are still lifes, landscapes, cityscapes or portraits from your own photo or artistic references. Students are welcome to explore any medium they choose including, but not limited to, oil, acrylic, gouache and watercolor.
