OGDENSBURG, NY - The Frederic Remington Art Museum will be offering a portrait painting class for adults on Tuesday, November 28, from 10 AM to noon. Participants will learn the fundamentals of portraiture by creating a portrait in oil, working from a live model. The class will be taught by local artist Julie Pratt, who will provide hands-on instruction in the use of light, shadow, color, and brushstrokes. Step-by-step guidance will be provided, so no experience is needed, although experienced painters will be given an extra challenge.

The class will be taught at the Eva Caten Remington Education Center, 323 Washington Street, Ogdensburg. All skill levels are welcome, and materials will be provided, though artists are welcome to bring their own materials. The cost of the class is $15 for members of the Remington Museum and $25 for non-members. The class is limited to 12 participants. Call 315-393-2425 with questions or to register, or visit fredericremington.org to register online.
