Salt Lake City—City Academy Charter School art teacher/artist, Jo Bradbury, is now offering oil painting classes to individuals who are 14 years old or older.  Aspiring artists of all skill levels are invited to attend the class for introduction to, or continuation of painting in oils.

The art class will meet every Wednesday from 3 to 4 p.m. in Room 2 at City Academy.  City Academy is located at 555 E. 200 S. in Salt Lake City.  Cost is $40 for each one hour class.  The classes will run until May 17.

According to Bradbury, “Students will get focused one-on-one instruction on how to create an underpainting, mix and apply colors, and the process of glazing.  Tuition includes in-depth demonstrations and instructions, as well as a process-based experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life!  You will leave the class with at least one finished painting.”

Students will receive a supply list via email when they sign up.  To reserve a spot in the class, email or text (801)800-1237.  Cost is $40 per one-hour class.
