    Facilitator: Sue Abare

    This class is for those first timers wanting to experience watercolor or someone who wants to expand beginning skills. Have fun exploring the enchantment of water and paint in their irresistible dance. As with all painting, a little drawing experience is helpful. Feel free to bring supplies you may already have or wait for suggestions on what you may want to purchase. Some basic supplies are furnished. We will discuss preparing paper to paint, brushes and their technique, some color theory - but mostly we will jump in the water, and do it!

     FacilitatorKaren Gines

     We will gather up all the methods we have tried and invite them to mingle with each other. An artist's search for a  'style' that is their own can be nurtured by sharing and experimenting with all the gems you have found along the way.  Acrylic on canvas with impressionistic or abstract ideas... I am thinking of "trees" as a subject that can be very flexible. Please no photos... (bring 2 canvas' each class no smaller than 18"x 20") and your acrylic paints, brushes, and supplies. 

    Call Karen if you have questions.... 815-229-5696 www.karengines.com
