Event description

Description

Explore painting the illusion of transparent glass and clear subjects in our latest watercolor workshop with artist and fellow gardener Marian Hirsch.

Learn expert watercolor techniques while you enjoy wine and snacks from our Cafe in the inspirational surroundings of our Gallery. Each watercolor workshop covers a different concept and principle.

The observation of how light travels through clear objects is the key component in the painting of crystal. This new class will get an overview of some of the basic rules to painting these subjects - from dew drops to vases. Attention to value and color will greatly aid in creating the illusion. We'll cover a bit of the science of seeing, but more about the fun of painting in watercolor – itself a transparent medium.

The workshop is limited to 14 students so that everyone receives the best in one-on-one instruction.

New to our workshop or a beginner? Please arrive at 1:30 for a guided orientation to receive the New to Watercolor handouts with additional resources and tips to help you further your art.

NOTE: not all supplies are included. Please purchase your supplies (from the suggested basic list below) in advance of the classes. All your other supplies are included.
