Class Description: The initial class of Painting 101 is a review of painting basics as far as materials, how to choose what medium will work best for the individual, followed by some basic plans for any art project such as perspective, division of the project, preserving materials from one session to the next, and finishing the project.

Instructor: Theresa Neville:
Theresa is a native Schoolcraft County resident, born at the old Shaw Hospital on the same street where she now lives. She grew up in Steuben and attended Cooks school until she moved into Manistique in her sophomore year of high school. She has a bachelor's degree in Nursing and a master's degree in Vocational Education. As a nurse, she taught Health Occupations for many years, worked in many areas of nursing at Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital as well as Schoolcraft Medical Care Facility. She always had a desire to draw and paint and spent many hours reading articles, books, and observing videos and others in their artistic endeavors, including some wonderful people in the Manistique Art Club. She paints in oil, acrylic, and watercolor and has tried a little chalk and other mediums but always goes back to watercolor and acrylics. "My art background is strictly self taught, attending several small classes in Arizona, and investigating different mediums to discover what works best for me. I enjoy sharing those ideas with others as I have done in my seniors park in Arizona."

"It is my desire to share the basics of painting that I have acquired throughout the years. It is my hope that each individual will bring their creativity to the class and will want to expand their experience of painting in whatever medium that they feel most comfortable using."
