Have you ever wondered how to successfully turn that photograph you love into a painting? Do you get stymied with how to transfer that photo onto the canvas? What elements should you include? What size canvas should you use? And then, when you're ready to get started, do you have trouble getting the proportions correctly laid out?

This class is for you!! Bring your photograph into the first class and after four weeks, you'll have a finished painting.
