Oil Painting in the Garden with Judith Kane – ongoing.
Judith is also an oil painter, and has taught painting for some years. The classes are on-going, and take place in the greenhouse or out in the gardens, taking advantage of the wealth of flowers and views. Meeting time will be determined by the class, but typically a weekday morning. Past students testify to how much they’ve learned! Classes are limited in size, as Judith likes to keep them small. Call her to reserve your place. 802-472-5512.
