Lunch With Natalia Andreeva

Become a Better Painter:

Lunch With Natalia Andreeva

Saturday, December 19

12:00PM – 2:00PM

Natalia Andreeva, a very successful painter and teacher will be with us for lunch, Saturday, December 19, from noon to 2:00 at the Pines & Palms Cigar Factory Art Space, 1815 E. Clay St, Thomasville.  As a teacher she has learned how to give valuable painting critiques.  Natalia says, “Too often teachers worry about hurting the artist’s feelings; to me we all can be better painters by asking for teachers’ clear suggestions. That is what I will do during lunch.”   She asks that you send her one or two photos of your paintings to her email,, by December 12.  She will use these to create a PowerPoint presentation to explain how your painting can be stronger. The cost is $40 and includes lunch; registration will close on December 13. The event must have at least 4 registrants and will have a maximum of 10 registrants.

This year’s High Cotton was the best yet!  We had more than 40 artists participate in the five days.  All seven of the featured artists are excited to come back next year because the event radiates the kindness of our community and there is no end of things to paint. One of the new events was a Quick Draw contest around Thomasville’s Big Oak Tree that drew a crowd.   The exhibit and wet paint sale at Covey Nest on Saturday was fun and we had our largest sales yet!  We want to extend a special thank you to our supporters and everyone who helped us make this such a wonderful and successful event.
