Local Artist Lynn Jasmin shows her class of one how to prep driftwood for painting. Students will prep driftwood and then, under Ms. Jasmin's tutelage, paint a scene of their choosing on the wood.
Ms. Jasmin, a native Boston artist who moved first to the Florida Keys and then Gulfport, said she moved to Gulfport because it reminded her of the Keys. She offers her class – Tuesday afternoon marked the first one – in conjunction with the new Project FREE on Beach Boulevard. Project FREE will teach developmentally disabled youth art, although the classes on offer now are geared towards the public. The course had only one student. Ms. Jasmin said she would accept new students next week, but committed to the class with only one enrollee.
