Paint-Ins are a single day class, usually taught the second Saturday of the month, from 9:00am - 3:30pm. It's a great opportunity to learn a new technique or squeeze in a class with your busy schedule. Registration is required.

    MONTHLY PAINT-IN:  Liz Hill and Landscape Collage   

    Saturday, March10; 9:30 am-3:30 pm  (set-up 9:00-9:30)

    Join Liz Hill for the March 10th paint-in.  She will show you how to design and place your shapes successfully, do a small value study, put your collage where it will have the most impact, and incorporate texture for a rich surface.  For this day of fun you will need a half sheet watercolor paper as well as all of your painting supplies.  You will need mat medium.  Think of anything to enrich your painting.  If you collect collage papers, by all means bring them.  Liz will supply some also.  You may paint on any surface you choose, but a full sheet of watercolor paper is hard to address with limited space.   

    Bring a landscape photo that has personal meaning to you.  It could be a vacation photo or your own back yard.  Come join in the fun and you are guaranteed a finished painting.  Contact Liz with any questions, Lizhill4u@aol.com

    Daniela Wernick's “Girl With the Popcorn DressSaturday, April 7; 9:30 am-3:30 pm  (set-up 9:00-9:30)

    Join Daniela Wernick for the April 7th paint-in.  Daniela is an award winning artist and a member of the Texas Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, and The Portrait Society of America!

    Daniela loves using Aquaboard for her watercolor paintings and is eager to share her knowledge with us.  She will show you the techniques for painting on Aquabord and discuss its special properties and differences.    She will show us how to put a drawing on it and then how to wet it and then paint on it.   She will also instruct us on how to finish the surface with fixative and varnish.

    For this day of fun, Daniela will provide a simple still life for us to practice with. 

    Ampersand has graciously agreed to donate each attendee with an 8” x 10” Aquabord!   You need only to bring your regular supplies:  watercolor paints and brushes,  paper to sketch on and take notes, tracing or printer paper, and two graphite pencils (2H and 6B). 

    Bring a sweater or light jacket and a sack lunch.
