We welcome local artist Penelope Wilson as she offers a class for adults to learn the art of watercolor painting. The class will be nature inspired - we'll learn about birds in the park and participants will be able to complete a painting of a species of bird found at the park. No prior drawing skills or watercolor skills are required. This fun class will teach the basics from a seasonsed artist as well as provide tips and tricks to help make a painting beautiful! The work shop participants will be doing a beginners version of this painting (geared toward the learning of the art of painting). This painting done from a pencil sketch will be available for inspiration during the class room instruction. All participants should bring a set of basic watercolor paints. Brushes and watercolor paint paper and other materials will be provided. $25.00 fee, registration required. Wentz Education Center.
