Joe Landscape

Big Brush Painting with Joe

Paint large! Experience the fun, freedom and spontaneity of using large brushes available at hardware stores to create landscape and seascape paintings. Using big brushes and water mixable oil paints, full-time Sandwich-based artist Joe Gallant will demonstrate and guide you through the steps of creating your own large seascape that just might become a focal point in your home or office!

You will complete your own oil painting during this fun four-hour workshop. Suitable for beginners, intermediate painters, and past participants in Joe’s workshops.

Joe has conducted workshops for many years and you will enjoy his fun and casual approach. If you have ever felt unsure of yourself when you start a painting, here’s your chance to learn an exciting technique that just might change the way you paint forever!

Students provide their own supplies (see list below). Wear clothing to paint in and feel free to bring a snack.
