Wednesday August 11th
Join renowned artist Drayton Jones for a beginners guide on how to simplify and enjoy the medium of watercolor. With the aid of demonstrations and one on one help from Drayton Jones himself, anyone can find the confidence to use watercolors. Students will start by thinking about what it is they'd like to paint, design what they wish to put on the canvas, and finally paint with Drayton's guidance. Students will leave this workshop with a one of a kind work of art, as well as the ability to create even more masterpieces of their own.
Students are encouraged to bring a packed lunch
