Canvas and Cork's

30-April-2016
   On Friday 29- April the Bogota VFW Post #5561 hosted a painting class presented by Canvas & Cork from Ringwood, NJ. Dina Pallozzi led the painters with step by step instruction on the art of painting a Spring scene.  Almost two dozen participants joined in to learn how to take a blank canvas and turn it into a personal work of art. They learn techniques from creating a base for the scene to be shown on, to adding highlights and details to create a more interesting scene. While all the attendees painted the same object, they all finished with a painting in their own style.
