Dancing With A Brush:  Repairing Problems in Watercolor
Friday, February 20; 10 a.m.—2 p.m.
Instructor: Ann Johnson
Cost: $75, includes lunch  

“Everyone starts a painting with great expectations. Then, as the paint slowly dries, it loses its luster and we lose our confidence.  Often we hurriedly brush over spots and suddenly the great painting we envisioned has nothing to do with our original vision. Take heart, for the situation is a common one and simple problems have simple solutions,” says Ann Johnson, formerly of FB Fogg. Class is designed for the beginning and advanced painter and will address mistakes made in watercolor and identify ways to correct them. Course will include a  step-by-step painting and a look at previous work. A suggested supply list will be provided. Limited to 16 participants.
