November 4 – Painting Your Woodcarvings with Rhonda Smith

This class is for beginners who want to learn how to finish a woodcarving project with paint.  Those with more experience and would like to see how Rhonda approaches painting are also welcome.  We will go over the process step by step, which will include some short dry times…there is nothing quite as fascinating as watching paint dry!

We will learn: How to begin, thinning paint, blending techniques, antiquing and how to seal your project when dry.

Please bring a carving to paint: Santas, caricature carvings, and anything similar to that.  If you are questioning if it is “okay” to bring something, feel free to message and ask

Rhonda will be providing art supplies, but if you have certain paints/colors and brushes that you already have for a specific project and just haven’t gotten to it, bring them along.  She’ll help you with it.

If you use Rhonda’s materials, there will be an additional $5 supply fee.

Class will run from 9am to 4:30pm and is limited to 12 students.  The fee is $30.00 per student payable to the Red River Valley Woodcarvers. The class materials can be purchased from the instructor.

Lunch will not be provided but there are many venues available in the area.

Please complete a registration form at “In The Chips” with a $15.00 deposit to reserve your place in class.  There is a minimum of 6 preregistered students required or the class will be canceled and deposits refunded.
