427--Key West: Painting Boot Camp with Rick Worth
@ CherieSpotting     Feb 17 2009 - 19:01 PST
cherie writes: For over a century, artists have been drawn to Key West. Key West’s inspiration lay in her balmy climate and charming architecture, but it’s the people of Key West who make the city what it is. One Human Family is Key West’s motto. There’s no better place than to learn the art of painting than Key West.

I took my first (and second) painting class from Rick Worth, a local Key West artist who holds weekly 2 ½ hour classes at TSKW (The Studios of Key West.) Members who sign up for a month of classes pay $20 a class which includes: paint, canvass, brushes and instruction. After 180 minutes of instruction, which Rick calls “Painting Boot Camp”, everyone walks out with their own painting.

Thirty students sit in front of their blank canvasses while Rick gives lessons and walks around the class giving everyone personalized attention. The first week we painted Koi fish, while the second week we painted a local Key West residence. I took the class with my friends Diane, Theo and Loretta. None of us had ever painted before this class.
