Registration is closed

This class runs two consecutive evenings for 3 weeks to paint from live flower still lifes. Students will use limited palettes to paint floral arrangements from life. Each week, Ann will guide students in painting a new arrangement using simple compositions to focus on the flower, it’s properties and complexities and painting technique. 

About the Instructor: Ann Musto

Ann has been a plein air and studio oil painter for over twenty years. Her interest lies in working to capture the beauty of what we see in light and color.  Ann’s work includes portraits, landscapes and still life. Ann completed her studies at the Academy of Realist Art in Boston, a traditional atelier. She has been a long time member of North River Arts Society and has served on the NRAS Board of Directors and on the NRAS Arts Committee.
