SEPTEMBER MONTHLY PRESENTATION

Gerald (Scout) Hatley

ANA Gallery @ the Rogers Experimental House
121 W. Walnut Street

1:00 – 3:00 pm
Free and open to the public.

I will do a demonstration and, if I can complete it within the time frame of the presentation, hope to offer it as a “door prize” for attendees. I will be demonstrating various techniques for using subtle color tinting and negative space to enhance the depth in one’s paintings and to create false imagery.

Join us in August for this fun, interactive program.
