Watercolor Workshop – Spring Landscape

Instructor: Mary Ann Heinzen

Saturday, May 18, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., $35

This class will start with a demonstration of a seasonal landscape by Mary Ann. Students will be able to choose an image from a selection of prints, and paint in their own style, anything from realism to wild abstract. The Art Loft provides a limited amount of beginner watercolor materials, and participants are encouraged to bring their own supplies if they have them. Beginners are welcome.

 

Renew

Instructor: Joyanna Margo

Saturday, May 18, 1:30 - 4 p.m., $35

Spring has sprung! It’s a time when all things are made new. Dull leaves and twigs are raked away, and blossoms break through their buds. Do you have an old acrylic or oil painting that you want to completely transform? Bring it to this class, and after two hours of markers, collage and acrylic paint, leave with a completely new painting to hang and enjoy. A painted bouquet bursting with life! All skill levels welcome.

 

Getting Creative with your iPhone or iPad

Monday, May 20, 1 - 3 p.m., $35
