Classes will take place on the second floor of The Mill Art Center. Students will be given an area to create their still life and paint that will remain set up for the entire 6 weeks. 

Each class will be 3 hours long and include class demonstrations and one on one instruction. Students have the opportunity to work in their studios Tuesday until 3:30pm.
