Béthune, who has a collection of paintings and collages being exhibited in the Wenberg Gallery in the Fonseca Center, showed students how to compose a painting from multiple sources. Chair of the Department of Visual Arts Cheryl Hajjar explained that, in addition to learning from the local artist, the master class was an opportunity for students to explore acrylic gouache, a medium that is new to them.
