Events - Patricia Haftar Demo and Optional Paint Along

Patricia will provide a description of paintings and art techniques of Canadian artist Claude Simard that has influenced her personal art style. Claude Simard's works depicted garden scenes, landscapes, still lifes and the human figure in a bright and boldly colored manner. Pat's demo will be of the attached painting, incorporating figures into a typical Winter Scene - perfect subject matter as we enter our Winter season.
