Discover the joy of painting in this landscape art class led by local artist Lizzy Mailho. In this class, Lizzy will guide painters in mastering puffy clouds, mountain ranges, pine trees, and lake water, in a scene not unlike a beautiful day in Lake Tahoe.
You will use tabletop easels, palette knives, and 2-inch bristle brushes to create your masterpiece, in a style inspired by a beloved television painter with a cult following. All painting styles welcome, especially beginners because there is no such thing as mistakes, only happy accidents!
You’ll leave class with a beautiful work of art on a 16×20 canvas, ready to frame, hang, and show off to your friends. All materials are provided.
About the Instructor:
Originally from the Bay Area, Lizzy Mailho is currently living in Sacramento, California, working as an artist and instructing painting classes. Graduating from Chico State with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art, she studied many art forms but had an emphasis in painting and drawing.
She is constantly evolving her style and technique, whether she is painting a traditional portrait or illustration. Her work is inspired by childhood memories of stories, fairy tales, and folklore, all being seen through adult eyes. The results can be humorous and slightly dark, but always whimsical and feminine. Paintings or illustrations often depict ethereal beings living in made up locations, that leave some sort of mystery to the viewer.
