Intermediate Watercolor Workshop with Nancy Lane For painters who have painted a bit on their own, have done some basic color mixing and are ready to take their work to the next level.  In each class students follow a step-by-step process to creating a painting.  Everyone works from the same photo, which could be a landscape, still life, animal, building or plant. Students practice various painting techniques after watching Nancy demonstrate them as part of the painting. In the final sixth class, students work from their own photos with guidance from the instructor.  There is a supply list for a suggested range of materials for the class.

Introduction to Watercolor Workshop with Nancy Lane Long time painter Nancy Lane will launch you into the world of watercolor! You’ll start by experimenting with brushes, paint and different papers, discussing the best materials to use. You’ll learn ways to control the paint, or allow it do some of the magical things watercolor is known for. We’ll paint a palette color guide together, and mix color. We’ll learn how to mask, glaze, soften edges and lift paint as we paint a winter scene together. There is a supply list for a suggested range of materials for this workshop class. SATURDAY  Jan. 25  | 10:00 – 4:00 pm  | $90.00

Oil Winter Scenes with Steve BonDurant Is snow white? Not really, when reflecting and absorbing ambient and filtered light, in shadow and highlight. From the warmth of the studio, we’ll spend two Saturday afternoons exploring the satisfaction of capturing the nuances and mood of a winter day. We will focus on exploiting color temperature and value relationships to develop a cohesive painting. Register and look for opportunities to snap a picture to bring for reference. There is a supply list for a suggested range of materials for this workshop.
