• Fall Workshop. November 10, 11, 12. Originally created for out-of-town art patrons who wanted to paint with Larry and Pam. (But many Atlanta-area people join in on the fun). This 2 1/2 day event packs a big punch. All art supplies are provided, so students simply show up and begin painting. We cover color theory, painting techniques, including palette knife and brush work. Students will leave with a finished canvas or two, and a lot of new learned knowledge of the painting process. Go to www.artistlarrysmith.com to learn more and sign up for the workshop.

There will be music, beverages, wine, cheese and tasty morsels to help put everyone in a wonderful Holiday spirit. We will have loads of exciting new original oil paintings. All at some very tempting prices. We hope you can make plans now to join us.
• Winter Oil Painting Classes. Classes start Tuesday, November 22 and Wednesday, November 23. Larry and Pam Smith are both award-winning artists. For the past nine years they have participated in the nation’s top juried-outdoor-art festivals. And together, they have taught an average of 100 students a year. Larry’s specialty is landscapes, color theory and playing “fun” music. Pam is known for her patient ability to teach others how to create beautiful oil portraits of people and dogs. Pam and Larry compliment each other. They bring strong teaching dynamics to the studio/classroom, while fostering an encouraging learning environment. Having two different teachers at the same time, has proven to be an excellent way for our students to learn how to paint. Together they make learning to paint fun, fun, fun.
Classes meet on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. There is one morning class (9am until noon), two afternoon (1:30pm until 4:30pm) and two evening classes (6pm until 9pm). Each class is three hours a week for six weeks.
Our Winter, 2017 Painting Classes are perfect for the beginner as well as the experienced artist hoping to expand their skills in painting. Classes meet at the 2 Smith Art Gallery in Historic Downtown Duluth. If you have courage to try something new, we can teach you to paint. —Larry Smith
