Description

During September’s First Friday in downtown Dover, participants will see master artist Ray Ewing demonstrate how to combine watercolor and pastel painting in one composition. Come see how you can incorporate Ray’s “combo technique” into your work! The demo will be held Friday, September 6 from 5:30-7:30 at the Dover Art League and is third in a series of workshops, demos and discussions in anticipation of the Paint Dover! plein air event and competition to be held downtown on October 4.

No experience necessary. The activity is free, though pre-registration is strongly recommended.
