Watercolor Demo April 26th; Watercolor Workshop
May 19th
@ Creative Arts Center
Watercolor is one of the most popular art media but it can be a difficult one to master. Some artists avoid watercolor if they feel they don't draw well. When the paper dimples and dips, when the colors bleed into one another and that isn't the goal, artists often just give up. Of course, a better quality paper and a lesson or two can often solve both problems.
The Creative Arts Center is offering a Beginning Watercolor Workshop with artist Walt Davis on Saturday, May 19th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Walt is an accomplished watercolorist from Campbell and has taught many workshops. Known for his relaxed and encouraging teaching method, Walt will also give a demonstration on Thursday evening, April 26th at 6 p.m. as an introduction to him and his teaching. Walt focuses on "the mechanics of watercolor application since the medium is fundamentally different from the direct application of most other media". The demonstration on April 26th is FREE and open to everyone. The workshop on May 19th is $65 and reservations with payment are required in advance. For those artists who do not like to draw, Walt will furnish drawings on which to paint, so that technique can be taught without the pressure of drawing. This workshop is a good one for beginners, artists who haven't used watercolor in a long time, and artists who just want to hone their skills. A minimum number of students will be required for the class and space is limited so sign so today !!!! For more information and to sign up, Call the Creative Arts Center at 903-640-2196.
