About the Instructor –  Sue Charles, BFA Painting, Boston University College of Fine Art.  Sue has been painting for twenty years and has taught landscape painting classes since 2002. She emphasizes teaching the acquisition of observation skills—perceiving a painting as a series of abstract hierarchal relationships— and rejects formulaic approaches to painting, trusting and encouraging each artist’s original work methods and expression. Sue has won numerous awards for her paintings and is represented by the Powers Gallery, the Alpers Gallery, the Islesford Artists Gallery and the South Street Gallery. She works in studio 110 at 14 Cedar Street Studios in Amesbury, MA.
