Oil Painting - Cancelled

Thursday, July 18, “Red Sky with Eagle”

Regrettably, this event did not attract enough participants before the registration deadline of July 16.

Please email if you would like to be notified of a future chance to paint with Jay Rupp.

At Jay Rupp’s group oil painting lessons, you will be taught the wet-on-wet technique of oil paint on canvas. The finished product will be a 16” x 12” canvas that takes a month to dry. All materials are supplied. Take your masterpiece home that night. Class is free for first timers.

Shown at left is a past one-time class at CXI -- just average people having fun and learning something new. Jay (front row, right) is a Bob Ross Certified Painting Instructor and loves to teach people who say they don’t have any artistical talent, so no experience is needed!
