Public Painting Classes Schedule August/September 2018

Hey Picasso!  Here’s the Into The Brush painting class schedule for during the next 30 days.  Come join us for a fun time with brush in hand and paint on palette.  (Sometimes people get that mixed up so wear an old shirt when you come.)  We are located at the Fernberg Gallery which is 15 miles NE of Ely on a nice, asphalt road.  Think of us being on Ely’s main street but only 15 miles out of town.  Easy to find.  Takes about 20 minutes to get here.

Check out the various painting topics offered and sign up by giving us a call.   All materials provided in each class.  Reservations are required for each class.  If you show up without reservations, please don’t be upset if you can’t have a seat or the class was cancelled and you didn’t know it.   If you have a question, you can call us (218-365-5489), private message us in Facebook by searching Into The Brush and hitting the “Message” button, OR send an email to: intothebrush@gmail.com

Get out there Saturday, July 28 and find some rocks.  IntoTheBrush rocks will be signed by Joe Baltich (JBALTICH) or Connie Edwards (CWE).

IntoTheBrush is a non-profit all about promoting art education and inspiring others to produce a higher quality of painted stones (and art in general) for the Ely region.   Finding cool rocks that took a considerable amount of effort is like looking for Easter eggs!  We hope the finders of our stones will consider giving painting a try.  It’s a great activity and is much like yoga without all that stretching and breathing.  Painting art lowers for blood pressure, improves mental focus, and is just plain relaxing – assuming one is not on a deadline, of course.   It’s relatively inexpensive to start and we believe that everybody can paint.  Give it a try.  Come take a Micro Art Rock Painting Class at Northwind Lodge.   It’s about 2 hours of fun – all materials are included.  Note that is is a bit challenging and may require a bit more focus, so not really suited for kids under 10 – depends on the kid, of course.  Click Here to find out more.
