Class: Watercolor Painting
Thursdays, starting October 18, 11am-1pm
Painting Seascapes with Strong Values 
with Harwood “Woody” Benton 
Fee: $40 per class

5 classes:  10/18, 11/8, 11/15, 12/6 and 12/20.  Take one, two, or all!

Watercolor painting is the process of staining heavy paper with water based pigment. With practice and patience, you can learn to capture the subtle shapes and light in the world around you. Watercolor, at its best, is about being in the moment and finding the essence of a subject rather than getting caught up in all of the minute details. In this class, we will start from a blank page and learn to bring to life a seascape scene from start to finish. Woody will demonstrate technique and show you how to create relationships with strong values, guiding each person as they try their hands at this wonderful medium.

This class is for adults. You do not have to have any prior experience. Woody has inspired adults for decades to add this form of moving meditation to their self-care regime. Paper supplied, students supply their own paint & brushes. To enroll, please contact by e-mail: cerulean777@icloud.com.


Workshop: Oil Painting
Saturday, October 20, 12:30-3:30 pm
MORE Finding and Using Color in Painting
with Sydney Hall
Fee: $35

Vibrancy Of Color- The painting class will focus on the fundamentals essential to oil painting. Emphasis is placed on properly starting a painting and relationships found within a subject. We will discuss equipment, design concepts, abstraction, tone, color, paint handling. Fine tuning will be ongoing We will be exploring and learning to see color, how to simplify your creation, shadow planes vs light planes, color change vs. value change, perspective, pushing distance, adding the opposite on the color wheel does not make your shadow color, white is not the answer to making something lighter… and more. We will have fun and laugh a lot as well. I look forward to working with you! This particular class is expressly for oil painters.
