Milwaukee Recreation offers virtual painting classes via Zoom

Virtual PaintingFor the first time this fall, Milwaukee Recreation is offering two virtual painting classes through Zoom!

Painting in acrylic or oils we will learn to see others in an artistic way. Realizing your individual approach is the goal of the class. You will be emailed a photo before class. Viewing the photo on your screen or getting it printed is up to you. A short demonstration will begin each class to get you started. You will receive individual instruction from the teacher. Join us for this fun, intuitive, online class.

Rec. at Home: Landscape Painting

Learn how to paint a beautiful landscape from the comfort of your home. We use a new photo for each class that it is emailed to you for download. Class starts with a demonstration to get you started. This is a relaxed class where you learn to paint what you see. Join us for this fun, intuitive, online class.

Longtime Milwaukee Recreation instructor Fred Bell will be leading both classes. Fred paints everyday in his home studio and honed his craft at the Art Students League of New York City. Fred hosted dozens of painting tutorial videos for Milwaukee Recreation's free Rec. At Home programming during the spring and summer; he has continued to post painting tips and tricks on his YouTube channel throughout the fall as well.

Perhaps Fred's greatest skill as an instructor, though, is his ability to create a family atmosphere within his in-person classes. Fred routinely draws rave reviews from his class participants, something that will certainly transfer to his Zoom sessions.

Spots are limited for these new virtual painting sessions. Register today!
