Workshop Description:

Join us for an exciting new series of water birds, painted in acrylics hosted by the talented artist Cherie Blickenstaff. The first of three sessions will feature the Pelican. This new series is designed to be a grouping that can be displayed together or stand-alone images. These guided sessions are suitable for beginners as well as seasoned painters. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist, this series is designed to cater to all skill levels. 


We will complete this 11 x 14 image in our three-hour session using standard acrylic paints and finalizing details with supplied acrylic paint pens. For further personalization, consider acquiring your own acrylic paint pens for at-home use.  Cherie will live demo this pelican painting step by step and walk around the room to give individual advice to those who desire some extra instruction. 


All supplies and a template for the Pelican will be provided.

About the Instructor:

About Cherie Blickenstaff in her own words: “Years ago, I made my living as an artist, creating artwork, participating in Florida outdoor art show, and licensing my artwork to various reproduction companies. Then life got in the way, and I had to get “a real job”. For 20 years+ I worked behind a desk instead of an easel.  I enjoyed it but with a degree in fine art, making PowerPoint charts was not my idea of being creative. Now that I have retired, I have gotten back in touch with my creative self. For the past several years I have been creating, doing shows again and teaching art classes. I enjoy sharing my skills and knowledge, especially with those who maybe thought they could never paint.”
