dsc_5809Almost every Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m., in a Cummer Museum Studio August through May, you can find Allison Watson’s painting class working hard on their paintings and thoroughly enjoying themselves. While a lot of regulars continue to take Allison’s class every session, new students are always welcome and warmly received. Allison always makes sure to spend extra time with any new students or beginners to painting. For those intermediate painters, she helps them continue to improve their skills and acrylic painting techniques. Additionally, at the end of May, Allison’s students will have the opportunity to display their works in an exhibition in Art Connections. Allison’s students put a lot of work and effort into their paintings, and it is enjoyable to watch them improve after each class.

Each session is six classes long, and you can take as many sessions as you would like. For more information, including dates, prices, supply lists, and links to register, please visit:

“Allison is spot on in assisting me on how to improve my efforts in my painting. Her insights are fantastic.”

“Allison Watson is an excellent teacher. The most important thing she teaches is her love of painting.”

“Overall experience with Allison was helpful. Specifically, her patience and approach to looking at objects and their translation on the canvas.”
