Guided Watercolor with Mary Murphy

August 12, 2021

Thursday August 12th

Enjoy a day of watercolor painting with expert help at hand. Mary will open with a watercolor demonstration, but the main class objective will be to provide individualized coaching for watercolorists who either have works-in-progress or are starting a new painting and would appreciate some advice. Get your questions answered about pigments, paper, brushstrokes, color, composition or more, or get a personalized demonstration of a particular technique. Bring your painting tools and yourselves for a pleasant day of painting and learning.

Materials To Bring:  A work in progress or a painting you are starting, your watercolor paints, palettes and brushes, scrap drawing and watercolor paper, and a packed lunch 

Materials Provided: water buckets, extra brushes, paper towels, tape

Registration Deadline: August 5th
