Watercolor Explorers' Club

You are cordially invited to participate in the inaugural session of the Watercolor Explorers' Club.  We have an auspicious beginning: the Ewing Cultural Center has invited us to premier at the Ewing Mansion, so save the date: 
Date/Time: Friday, March 22, 10 AM to 12 Noon.  
Location: The Ewing Cultural Center is on the corner of Emerson and Towanda Streets 
in Bloomington.

Morning's Itinerary: Executive Director Toni Tucker will give us a short tour of Mrs. Ewing's watercolor collection.  Following the tour, we will paint at Ewing, in their spacious conference room.
Topic: Choosing subjects that have meaning to you.  Please bring family heirlooms or mementoes from your travels. I will make a group still life to which you add your special heirlooms or mementos. We will paint from our specialized still life and I will review watercolor and composition basics and my demo will focus on mixing vivid colors.

Cost/reservations: All Watercolors Explorers’ Club events cost $25 per session.  An optional 1/2 hr group mini-critique will follow for anyone interested. Future watercolor sessions will mostly alternate between Friday mornings and Sunday afternoons at various inspiring locations once a month. Please call ahead or email to reserve your spot.  I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
