Are you tired of working alone and longing to get some insight from others on your Art Work?
The Art Barn is sponsoring a once a week Virtual Review.
Join Julia Holmaas by video conference call and share your recent work. We will look at the paintings together and talk about what works and what could be improved. The painting should be recent work done at home either from life or reference photos.
Respond to Julia at via email. She will then send you the link to join via Google Meet along with information on what to expect and how to prepare for the meeting.
