Sochor teaches watercolor at Merryspring

Sep 13, 2018
Watercolor classes are offered regularly at Merryspring Nature Center.

Camden — Lesia Sochor will begin a new five-week session of intermediate watercolor classes Thursday, Sept. 27, from 9 a.m. to noon at Merryspring Nature Center, 30 Conway Road.

A graduate of the Philadelphia College of Art, Sochor is a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher who believes anyone has the ability to create. While her classes focus on technical skills like edge control, tonal values and composition, she also encourages students to discover personal style and creative interpretation.

Sochor has lived, painted, exhibited and taught in Maine for more than 30 years. She has been a visiting artist in Maine schools through the Maine Arts Commission; and she co-founded the Art Annex, a school in Belfast for youth and adults. She teaches annual art programs at Waterfall Arts and is currently teaching a teen program at Ironwood in Morril.

The classes will run Wednesday mornings, Sept. through Oct. 25. Class size is limited, so pre-registration is required. Cost for the five classes is $190, with a $20 discount for Merryspring members. To register, call 236-2239 or email
