Workshop with Artist Barbara Stanton

IGMA Fellow Barbara Stanton will be teaching a miniature oil painting workshop on January 17th. The subject will be determined by the students' interest. The class is geared for beginners who have never painted before. Students with full size painting experience would have fun painting minis, too. Students will learn the secrets of color mixing, composition and values, all on a tiny canvass under 3-inches. Email: microangelo@earthlink.net. Web: http://www.barbarastanton.com
