The Center For The Arts Presents OnTheWeb | Painting Class: What’s in Your Nest? (via Facebook Live)

Saturday, April 18


Local artist Eileen Blodgett teaches us how to paint a bird nest with simple acrylic paints on Facebook Live via The Center for the Arts. Gather your supplies and enjoy this interactive tutorial. This lesson is suitable for ages 12-80+.

Required Materials:
• 10″ x 10″ piece of heavy paper or canvas panel
• Brushes of varying size (a couple smaller brushes are helpful for details)
• Acrylic paint: red, yellow, blue, white, burnt sienna, umber.
• A few cardboard scraps (from cereal box or packaging)
• Palette (paper plate)
• Water in container
• Pencil
• Rag


Eileen’s work is an adventure, continuously twisting and changing, often without a destination in mind. Each piece is a stepping stone left behind to guide you along with her; or perhaps to help find a way back. In each creation, you can find the liberating energy she projects. Her work is filled with a harmony composed of spirit and peacefulness. This quality, in the artist and her work, has inspired many students of all ages, and is generating a number of emerging professional artists. Learn More: fb.me/eileen.blodgett.5eileenblodgett.com
