* Learn more...

Have you always wanted to paint with watercolor but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you’ve tried watercolor but quit in frustration? This “Introduction to Watercolor” workshop will introduce the various watercolor papers and brushes used to achieve the “right” affect, wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry painting techniques, and finally, layering, lifting and scrubbing. After learning these principles our workshop will conclude with painting a beautiful autumn scene. Seating is limited so reserve your space now!

Take your artistic inclinations to the next level! Guided by our Center Teaching Artist, Nancy Robinson, explore principles of the fine and mixed media arts in our new Art Sp*rk lessons that take place on every 3rd Saturday of the month**. Dive deeper into technique and cultivate your unique art-making style and identity within each 2-hour lesson. Created for new artists looking to improve their skill, or experienced artists looking to try out different art forms, this is no paint-by-number classroom! Materials, pastries, and drinks are provided.

**Please note that this program is different from Second Saturday.
