Chuck's Next class September 24

                      Wondering if you'd enjoy a class with Chuck?

Consider this comment by a happy painter after his recent workshop:                       "We enjoyed Chuck's class and loved that it was held at our veryfavorite place, the Arboretum. Chuck was friendly and made the class fun. Because he allowed us the freedom to express our individual tastes through our paintings, we feel we brought home a unique piece of art...even though we all painted the same lizards. Friends and family are able to easily pick out who painted which lizard with the comment that they can tell because each lizard matches the personality of the "artist"."
                      Among the charms of downtown Superior are building brightened by colorful murals; perhaps you’ve recognized a signature
whimsical style of Southwestern contemporary scenes
from art magazines and event posters.
This Summer artist Chuck Davison invites you to learn basic painting -- and take home your own unique piece -- following a beginners’ painting class where he’ll give step-by-step instruction and coaching to help beginners paint a colorful lizard design.
Enrollees painted a lizard design in May, dragonfly in June - and will complete a botanical piece in July: Prickly Pear Cactus.
Enrollment of $35 for Arboretum annual members and $47.50 nonmembers includes all art supplies you'll need for the class (includes the day's admission, too, for nonmembers). Taught in the air-conditioned lecture room of the historic Smith Building from 11am-2pm, enrollment includes canvas, paint, brushes, embellishments - plus light refreshments. Children are welcome to register along with an adult chaperone; both must be registered and pre-paid for the class. To register have a credit card ready and call Arboretum staff during daytime business hours 6:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
