Judy's Art Studio
The Museum is pleased to host Judith Murray Smith’s art classes, which emphasize a supportive work environment and a love of art. For more information or to register, contact Judy at (781) 344-0004, or (508) 941-2369 or greenthumbparty.com.
First time students complete a series of drawings designed to lead from black and white contour drawing to pencil shading to working in color with pastels and acrylics. Repeat students are encouraged to explore acrylics on canvas. Students are guided at his/her own level in this “working atmosphere” that promotes the love of art. Older students interested in art careers may have portfolio guidance. Proper “art openings” are held to show off finished work.
