      Ina Millman will be conducting a workshop at Papillon Theatre on Saturday and Sunday 19 and 20 October. The subject is “Birds”.  Students will be taught techniques to paint feathers, as well as how to do a good composition.  Ina will be doing a step-by-step demonstration, so that aspiring artists of all levels can follow.

      However, each person will be painting a different bird.  Ina has very good reference photographs for each course participant, so don’t stress if you do not have a good photograph.  You may borrow one of Ina’s photos.   Ina will be painting in oils, but you may paint in any medium you choose.
