Art Lessons by Linda


Paint an Amish Buggy or Amish Barn Art Piece!  Hands-on Group Exclusive opportunity!  Sit down with local artist, Linda Pieri and be shown painting secrets developed throughout the ages.  Linda has taught over 1000 people in the art of acrylic painting encouraging them to “not just look at what you are drawing or painting, but to see what is really there.” In this one-hour session, you will be able to observe a demonstration and follow step-by-step instructions that will help you create your own masterpiece. This is not a paint by number situation. Linda helps each person discover the creative artist inside of each of them. Everything is provided including:  easel, canvas, acrylic paints, brushes, brush basins, palettes, and paint clothes. Acrylic paintings are on 5” x7” canvas board postcards. Everyone leaves with a finished painting that they will be proud of. One subject matter per class – to be chosen by group leader prior to class. (Available subject matters will be given to group at time of booking) 

NOTE:  Groups of over 25 are split in to two equal quantities of guests…half will begin shopping in downtown Middlebury while the other half paints their masterpiece inside the quaint Middlebury Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center. Shoppers are welcomed to charming downtown Middlebury with stylish wardrobe finds for every season beneath the tin ceilings at the Cinnamon Stick, whimsical gifts at Varns & Hoover, seek yardgoods where the Amish shop or handcrafted hardwoods from Amish-owned Legacy Home Furniture. Also available are comfort foods in cozy spaces such as just-like-mom’s meatloaf, breaded tenderloin sandwiches, fresh seasonal salads, gourmet coffee or fresh from the oven scones. Group “halves” rotate so everyone can complete their experience. Groups smaller than 25 people do not need to split up in to two sessions.
