with Marilyn Rogers-Bull, RSU 54/MSAD 54 Adult and Community Education
This is not a beginner’s class. It is for those who have painted in the past or present and would like to join others who love to share their love of painting. Painters are encouraged to use any medium they might choose. Marilyn uses oils and watercolors mostly, but if you prefer another kind, that is fine also. We would love to have you join us!
A few words from Marilyn – I am not a teacher; have only had a few lessons myself. But…Many years ago while walking on a beach in Florida, I dreamed up the idea of having a class at Skowhegan Adult Ed for those who might love to paint as much as I do. I went to the Skowhegan Adult Ed office and made a deal with them; that if they would let me have a room once a week for such an idea (and since I’m not a teacher) I shouldn’t be paid. It is such a blessing and I have found some wonderful friends, many of whom can paint much better than I can.
