WATERCOLOR


Watercolor: Art in the Garden (All Levels)
Ages 16–adult. Bring your lunch and enjoy a beautiful day of painting in the Womanspace Gardens. The greatest challenge will be deciding what to paint! Should you choose one of the beautiful sculptures, or the flowers blooming everywhere; or one of the many birds — or how about the Labyrinth, or perhaps one of the five deer that have made Womanspace their own place to retreat….all while getting great instruction and direction from Sue Abare! As with all painting, a little drawing experience is helpful. Feel free to bring supplies you may already have. Some basic supplies are furnished.

Sue studied at Ohio State University and at the Cincinnati Art Museum. She has taught privately, as well as at the Kaleidoscope School of Art in Barrington. Sue exhibits throughout the Midwest and South, has artwork in many private and public collections, and tries to devote most of her time to developing her own paintings.

ARTSHOPS


ART UNCORKED

Age 21 & up. Join us for any of these three unique one-night workshops each resulting in a finished art piece!

 

From Drab to Fab Acrylic Painting
Have any old, forgotten, abused or neglected small wooden furniture? Bring the piece (pre-painted and dry with a nice, non-glossy undercoat) to this fun and creative painting class. Add designs and colors with acrylic paints, and your piece will be the envy of all your other furniture! If you don’t have anything old and unfinished lying around, find wooden objects at your local hobby store or resale shops! We will provide some paint and the wine, but feel free to bring any “wild and fun” colors with you!

Cherie Heck loves to play with art and teaches a number of art classes at Womanspace. She is chair of the Gallery Committee and also the part-time Volunteer Coordinator. Her artistic talents are many and her beautiful creations have appeared in several of our art exhibits and fundraisers.

Course #: AW13-20
Date: July 29
Time: Tuesday, 6:30–9:00p
Instructor: Cherie Heck
Location: New Dimensions 2D Studio
Sorry, this class is full!
Register by July 24. Registration Policy

 

One-of-a-Kind Designer Bags
Start the evening with a delightful glass of wine as you decide on a design for your “one of a kind” painted canvas bag. This large bag with front pockets will hold art supplies, groceries, folders, or any number of items we carry with us from place to place. Acrylic paints and brushes will be provided as well as ideas for stimulating your own individualized pattern. Bring your friends for a “girls night out” event!
