Bring a bag lunch. Dress for fun mess!
Artist Sue Brucks-Schurch will teach students the basics of acrylic painting. Each student will receive an 11 x 14 wood plaque (w/hanger) that has a wood-burned image ready for paint. Sue will demonstrate paint application, brush strokes, color mixing and simple shading to complete a painting. According to Sue, “Even though each person has the same image to work from as a guide, all the paintings turn out so very different. Students are choosing colors they like and using strong or soft brush strokes to give it personality, each plaque will be unique to the person painting it.”
Join LOLA for this fun class and learn the ways of acrylic paint!
Sue owns Blossoms Studio in Land O’ Lakes, which she opened in 2001. Working in acrylic paint, she paints and wood burns on found objects and new wood, but loves to find old barn wood and antique furniture as surfaces for her work. Sue is on the Northwoods Art Tour, sells her work at Moondeer & Friends in Boulder Junction and Cluck the Chicken Store in Paoli, WI. Sue graduated from UW-Madison in 1979 with a major in art. According to Sue, “I have been painting since I was a child, and continually dragged old “stuff” home. My work is fun and functional.”
