The second session of South Beaches Gallery’s Traditional Oil Portraits Workshops will begin April 19th.
This series of adult art classes (teens will be considered after an interview), is a valuable opportunity to work with a Master Portrait Artist, using a live model. Classes are open to all levels of expertise.

Classes are $225 for the series and begin Wednesday, April 19th and run through May 17th. Hours will be 6:00 PM to about 8:30 PM, and easels will be provided. A supply list will be available upon reserving a space.
