Looking to improve your artistic skills? We are excited to offer a beginners' watercolor painting class for adults at the Library next month!
The class will run from 5.30 - 7.30 p.m. on Thursday, November 2 at the Library.
Instructor Veronica Morgan is an experienced artist and teacher whose artworks have been featured and won prizes in many local venues, including Tulip Time, Windmill Island Gardens and the Grand Rapids Children's Museum. Veronica will guide participants in the essential elements of watercolor painting and each of them will create a watercolor landscape painting to take home.
This class is free, and all materials will be provided, but in order to offer the best instructional experience, space is strictly limited. We will be creating a waitlist and may add a second program date if there is sufficient interest.
Please call the Library at 857-8241 during business hours, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot. Please include your full name, email address and phone number in your request.
Day 1: We will learn basic mark-making and other practices after a demo or two, discussing related elements. Each student will begin and complete a pastel painting.
Day 2: We will review first day and instructor will field any questions/concerns. Then we will begin and complete at least one other painting on that final day. You may bring your own photos - that you've taken - to use on the second day (subject to discussion with instructor) for your final painting(s). If you don't have any suitable source photos, the instructor will have some for you to use.
MATERIALS TO BRING:
Students will provide their own materials. A supply list will be sent out prior to the workshop.
