I am delighted that PBS artist Wilson Bickford is coming to the Tupper Arts Center again. His oil painting class is scheduled for November 3, but it’s not too early to sign up and reserve your seat. I already did. 🙂
I first discovered Wilson on WPBS-TV. He has a series called Painting with Wilson Bickford. My mother, who painted in oil and acrylic, used to watch Jerry Yarnell, and I would often watch with her. She would have enjoying watching Wilson’s painting show. Anyway, I started watching him and in May of last year I decided I would go to one of his local workshops. This was the result.
I was hooked! I took a couple more workshops with Wilson. Some of the ones I wanted to attend were held out of town at night, and I seldom drive at night. I practically begged him to come here. Finally the stars aligned and Tupper Arts booked his knife painting workshop this past July. It was a big hit!
And now Wilson is coming back to Tupper Arts on Sunday, November 3, 2019. If you have ever considered painting anything besides the living room walls, please take a class with Wilson Bickford. You will be astounded (as I was) at what you can do. 🙂
