Presenter Pat Smelkoff will teach a few basic strokes as you practice to paint Russian flowers, leaves and borders. Using the #4 and #6 filberts, you will learn flat, comma, crescent “c” and “s” stroke and the leaf stroke. With a liner, you will create beautiful borders and filler strokes. This is an acrylic class, and you will leave with some examples of your work.
