[Every Saturday here at Jerry's we bring in a special treat - A local Austin artist comes to the store and shares their knowledge and experience with you, providing lessons about whatever it is they specialize in. It happens on Saturday from Noon-3PM and best of all, it is free! Come learn with us!]

Saturday, June 19 (12-3PM)

Have you ever wanted to paint on a canvas of your very own making? Well, if the answer is yes, your time has come. Linda Wandt will show you how to stretch a canvas to any size your heart desires. In this highly demanded demo Linda will show you how to properly assemble stretcher bars and stretch canvas over them to make a beautiful canvas. Come out and learn something new or just make sure you were doing it correct all this time.

Linda Wandt was born in Huntington, New York in 1981 and studied oil painting at the University of Texas at Austin, where she obtained a BA in studio art in 2006. She primarily paints figures in narration, or attempts to pose questions to her audience through visual means. Her paintings are usually bright, expressionist and often surreal. She has shown her work in various local businesses around Austin, and has participated in the East Austin Studio Tour in 2008-2009.
