    JANUARY MONTHLY PAINT-IN: Demystifying Nocturnes with Carla Gauthier

    Carla Gauthier, long time WAS-H teacher, WAS-H elite signature member, and NWS member, will inspire us with teachings on night paintings.  See her website:  http://carlagauthier.com/

    Come for a day of painting "nocturnes" - night paintings. We will work together on a painting, getting both the glow of lights and velvety darks to create a night scene with drama and personality. Bring your regular painting supplies, and gouache if you have it. We will use very little of that, so don't go shopping.....unless you "need" an excuse to buy more art supplies! A value scale is also helpful, if you have one.  Come for a day of learning and fun!

    Bring a sack lunch, sweater or light jacket (in case the room temp is cool),   We’ll have snacks and coffee!

    FEBRUARY MONTHLY PAINT-IN: Botanicals from Fresh Flowers with Liz Wagar

    Liz Wagar is back to teach her popular Botanicals Paint-In.  This year it is a “Valentine’s” theme! See Liz’s website at:  http://elizabethwagar.com/

    Take a fresh break from winter and come paint fresh flowers! We will review the art of botanical illustration and art from the Renaissance to present-day and explore why formal botanical art is painted as a separate discipline. Learn the specific techniques for drawing and painting on hot-press paper and why botanical “anatomy” is important.

    There will be fresh flowers provided for you to choose from for your  botanical.  If you were lucky enough to get your own flowers for Valentine’s, feel free to bring them and paint a memento.

    Bring your usual painting supplies and a sheet of hot press paper.

    Bring a sack lunch, sweater or light jacket (in case the room temp is cool),   We’ll have snacks and coffee!
