If you share the love for the hustle and bustle of the city and all the bright lights that dance around you while you walk the streets, come paint the city with Jennifer Diehl. Working one on one with each student, Jennifer teaches the simplicity that takes an otherwise overwhelming subject and makes it something not only manageable, but fun!

Friday night will be a demo that shows the process and answers questions, while enjoying nice wine and appetizers. Then, after a short lecture Saturday morning, we'll start our pieces! Each person’s individuality is crucial and will be focused on as Jennifer comes to each canvas and tailors the learning process to you. Let's get painting!

Please bring 2-4 photos of cities that you may have taken on your travels or in your daily life that you would like to paint. I would suggest that the photos be brought and displayed on a laptop so that you can zoom in and see the image larger if need be. Jennifer will also bring some images to choose from.
