Just think about that little cafe where you got your coffee this morning....the warm light, the thick smell of coffee in the air.....it would make a great painting wouldn't it?  This class focuses on giving you the tools to make that painting a possibility. We will start out in Edmonds’ very own Walnut Cafe, gathering the materials and information needed, and then we will bring it all back to the studio to make a painting of it!

Jennifer Diehl is well known for her beautiful impressionistic still lifes among her other fabulous work. She has also become a favorite teacher not only here at Cole Art Studio, but all over the West Coast. Come, learn from the best and grow your skills!
