Sep 05, 2014
Lesia Sochor’s art classes regularly are offered at Merryspring Nature Center.

Camden — Lesia Sochor will begin a new five-week session of intermediate watercolor classes Thursday, Sept. 18, at Merryspring Nature Center, 30 Conway Road. The weekly classes will meet Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon.

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 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 in Belfast and currently is teaching a teen program at Ironwood in Morrill.

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 us at
