    10:00 am–12:00 pm

    Facilitator:  Sue Abare

    This class is for those first timers wanting to experience watercolor or someone who wants to expand beginning skills. Have fun exploring the enchantment of water and paint in their irresistible dance. As with all painting, a little drawing experience is helpful. Feel free to bring supplies you may already have or wait for suggestions on what you may want to purchase. Some basic supplies are furnished. We will discuss preparing paper to paint, brushes and their technique, some color theory — but mostly we will jump in the water, and do it!

    Facilitator: Eamonn Talkington

    So often we think art requires special supplies and $15 tubes of paint. But that isn't always true. In this two-week course, you will be instructed in the creation of two original abstract works of art. You will be shown how use of various implements and tools for the application of paint, as well as, instructed in the use of various types of paints and mediums. Paint, brushes, and tools supplied. Please bring two canvases any size that "speaks" to you.

    Intermediate to Advanced students will enjoy instruction tailored to personal interests. These two hour classes are limited in size and designed to suit student goals and ensure progress. Students select art media with which they are most comfortable to pursue individual directions.  If you've already taken a variety of classes in drawing and painting but seek more, or if you've tabled your passion as life intervened, we've got a home for you here. This class assumes a comfort level with drawing and/or painting and is not for beginners.

    Come and have fun, get messy with this free flowing medium! Tres will guide you through the steps using different techniques to achieve some amazing pour painting results. Each session offers a new interesting outcome! Paints are included, but if you would like to bring your own colors you will need 4 small bottles of craft paint. Wear an old shirt or smock, this is a messy process!
