We offer two oil painting classes that meet either Monday or Tuesday from 10:30 am to 12:30pm. Classes are made up of a few beginners as well as folks who have painting experience.


On occasion, Blanche (the instructor) has done oil painting demonstrations, and has set up still life arrangements for the class to paint from, as opposed painting exclusively from photographs.


Each class gets to exhibit at the Astoria Bank in the Whitestone shopping center so that the community gets to see what we are doing at GWTCC. It’s also a thrill when a student gets to sell a painting!


This past June, the art classes attended the Impressionists Art Show at the NY Botanical Gardens, followed by lunch at Emilia’s on Arthur Avenue, a real treat for all!


Seating is limited and there could be a waiting list. If you are interested in joining a class, please let Ruth Cipko know your desire.
