I first came across artist Kelly Demarco of Darien when I read about her current show at Darien Sport Shop. Her beautiful watercolors will be on display there on the mezzanine level through the Summer. You can also view her work at www.paintstudioandgallery.com, but check back again soon because she's updating her Web site this week.
Not only does Kelly teach painting classes for adults, but for kids too and her Summer program is about to begin. See the schedule and class descriptions below. Classes are for all ages because Kelly teaches to each individual's level.
