Newberry Library Seminars Program: Arts, Music, and Performance
#Weekend Watercolor Intensive
Saturdays, 1 - 4 pm
July 11 - July 25
3 sessions, $120
If you ever wanted to paint watercolors but felt they were difficult, now is your chance to find out otherwise. Watercolors can be fresh and spontaneous or complex and carefully developed. Learn watercolors anew or, if an experienced painter, brush up on drawing, composition, and color mixing while making meaningful personal still lifes. The exciting part is making meaningful paintings from your heirlooms, mementos from travel, or flowers from the garden. Supplies are inexpensive. You already have some materials at home.
Cynthia Kukla is a Professor of Art at Illinois State University and one of only two hundred members of the USA Watercolor Honor Society.
