New Art Classes at Palace Art in Capitola

You Can Paint!

It’s always the right time to make art. Indulge your creativity in our Saturday art workshops and weekday classes at Palace Art in Capitola, in Santa Cruz County. And bring a friend!

Capitola Sunset

Saturday, July 14, at Palace Art in Capitola (11 am to 6 pm)

Colorful Capitola Village is one of the most picturesque spots in California, and it’s an irresistible subject for painting. In this special one-day workshop, you’ll learn all about perspective, depth, and the painterly approach, while you create a beautiful work of art to bring home with you.

California Coast

Saturday, July 21, at Palace Art in Capitola (11 am to 6 pm)

American Impressionists often found their inspiration in the California coastline. Our subject for this new Paint Along workshop is William Wendt’s gorgeous “Crystal Cove” from 1912. It’s a great lesson in dynamic use of color and creative brushwork. And you’ll finish the day with a beautiful painting.

“Lady Agnew” by John Singer Sargent

Saturday, July 28, at Palace Art in Capitola (11 am to 6 pm)

Many of us saw this painting recently in San Francisco and were amazed by its subtlety and compelling beauty. I will guide you through this special Paint Along workshop, with step by step instructions, as you complete your own version of this famous painting. It’s a great introduction to portraiture, and a must-attend event.
