What you'll learn in this painting class:

This expression is often used as a metaphor for “getting easily distracted”, but we will take it literally. Learn to paint and draw shiny objects - that are considered to be only possible to the “professional level” of skills: silver and gold, highly polished surfaces, sparkling eyes, and raindrops on leaves or flower petals. 

Find out how easy it is to create the shine - it is the technique that makes it possible: after these five days every participant will have this skill.
