We have a wonderful program offering for our Rochester Art Club members in February. Maureen Church will be presenting techniques and materials for creating nocturne paintings. Please see more details and information in the poster to the left and in Maureen’s bio below. 
 
You are welcome to paint along or simply come in to the studio to watch and learn. If you would like to paint, please bring a portable easel and your art materials. We ask that you use only solvent free mediums and no solvent in the studio during the presentation. If you would like to paint and do not own a portable easel, just let us know when you RSVP and we will provide a table top set up for you. Suggestion is to arrive 15 minutes early to get set up. 
 
If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to Cris Metcalf

About Maureen Church

Maureen Church is an accomplished artist who finds inspiration in the beauty of nature. She is a versatile painter, equally adept at capturing the spontaneity of outdoor painting as she is at creating dramatic landscapes and animal portraits in her studio using warm, molten encaustic wax. She earned a BFA at Alfred University and a Masters in Art Education at Nazareth College, and enjoyed a successful three-decade career teaching art until she retired in 2017. Since retiring from teaching, Maureen has devoted herself full-time to her art, working out of her studio at the Hungerford Building in downtown Rochester. As a signature artist in the Genesee Valley Plein Air Painter’s group, she shares her joy for plein air painting in local shows and competitions. Her passion is evident in her small, vibrant paintings, which often serve as references for her larger canvases.
