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

Micro Art Classes – Ely Winter Festival 2017

Join senior artist Joe Baltich at Into The Brush for Micro Art Classes at Northwind Lodge.  Micro Art Classes are for people to see if this whole “painting thing” is achievable or not.  So far, I’m going with “Yup.” for the vast majority of people.

Each class is about 2 hours long and held at Northwind Lodge / Red Rock Wilderness Store on the Fernberg Road.  Paint a Lake Superior Rock in this “follower the leader” art class where you will get to test your skills and maybe discover a passion for painting.  All materials are provided including a Lake Superior rock, acrylic paints, brushes and instruction.  Learn basic brush handling skills and blending by simply doing.  It’s fun, mildly challenging,  and you get to take home a rock that should have more than one color on it by class end.

Cost is $35 per participant.  Recommended for ages 12 and up.  Reservations for seating are required.  Please call for availability 218-365-4512.  If you are all thumbs, please wear clothing that could get a little paint on them.  Don’t come in like a rented tux or anything like that.

Into The Brush is a non-profit program based at Northwind Lodge to help people learn to paint by discovering the wilderness of Ely, Minnesota.  Our goal is to introduce all walks of life to our wilderness through art education.  At program’s end, participants will have a developing new skill set, confidence, and a knowledge of the most beautiful place in the world called Ely Minnesota.  We hope to encourage you to participate in our regular summer programs and/or donate to help more people develop this life-long skill of painting beautiful things.  A “Donate” button is at the top of the page.   Your donation will go towards art equipment purchases and operating costs to run Into The Brush.
