Oil Painting for Beginners

We will set a date after enough people tell us they want to come!

Shown at left is a one-time class at CXI -- just average people having fun and learning something new. Jay (front row, right) taught us how to paint this keepsake oil painting in just one evening last summer. We took home our painting that same night!  

New painting subjects will be offered depending on the season. No experience is needed! 

If you want to have a group painting lesson like this in Summer 2019, please email and when we get enough requests, we will set a date. Choose your top 2 times from these 3 choices: Tuesday daytime, Tuesday evening, or Friday evening,
