Pino teaches at the Family Life Center of the First Baptist Church in Cedartown, every Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Her classes are open to the public at no cost.
The beautiful fine art of porcelain painting has it roots from the 14th century in China. Unlike ceramics, you do not have to clean any green ware, the items you paint are shiny white finished pieces of porcelain.
Each person in the class studies a subject they wish to paint, then Pino teaches them how to paint that design using modern day freehand techniques or transfer techniques.
