Watercolor Winterscape with Cheryl Gould

Saturday 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.

October 29

Class Fee: $55 ($50 Members)

Ages 16-Adult
In this class we will work with the basic elements of a winter landscape; sky, snow, trees and sunlight. We will be pouring, spraying, spattering, salting, stamping, and also using brushwork to create a winter scene. Perhaps it will be something you could use for a Christmas card? Several photos will be provided as reference material, but also feel free to bring you own reference photos to work from. We may be working on several scenes during the day in order to let the paintings dry between steps. Bring a lunch.
