Getting Ready to Paint

Getting Ready to Paint
In this one-hour class learn about watercolor paints, surfaces to paint on, brushes and how to preserve paintings. Learn several techniques including: blending, layering, lifting, wet on wet, and dry brush. Color theory will also be explored. You will paint several small paintings in this class. Prerequisite for this class: Drawing 1 or proficiency in drawing.

This class is part of a series of workshops being taught by regional artists including: Jessie Vaughn, Curt Weinhold, Julie Mader, and Rick and Zoe Boni. Thanks to a PPA Grant provided by the PA Council on the Arts, these workshops are being offered at a reduced rate with the goals of raising awareness of the arts in Potter and McKean Counties, and providing those interested in developing or improving their artistic skills with opportunities to do so. These workshops are supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

This class is being held on Thursday, April 10, 2014, from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. or 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Abundant Blessings in Coudersport. The cost is $5.00 per person, which covers the cost of materials. To register, visit www.pottercountyedcouncil.org or call (814) 274-4877.

Jessie I am so glad you are still painting! My daughter saw the display you had at the Charles Cole Hospital art gallery. She and her friends had a blast looking for the little letters in the "DILDINE" puzzle and found all seven letters you hid in every painting except for the daisies. Then my husband kept looking at the daisies and found the D I L D I N E in the tiny letters next to the stem. We like how you mix artistry and nature's beauty with a little puzzle of challenge in each painting. Keep up the good work!!!

Agreed in Jessie. We enjoy looking for the seven tiny letters in each work of art. Also really enjoy Curt Weinholds's work and I am sure the other artists have God given talents as well.
