Watercolor demonstration on Mondays
Acrylic demonstration on Wednesdays
We have everyone from beginners to professionals in these classes. Come with a drawing or photograph that you would like to paint. Don't be scared, join us as we perfect our painting techniques.
Brushes: - small handles are for watercolor
Arches 140 lb sheets or pad (the cheaper the paper, the poorer the results)
a beginners set of watercolor paints
if you are buying the tubes separate, John suggests:
and the rest is up to you
a palette to put the paint in
a small salt shaker full of salt
a flat brush, about half inch wide
the more brushes the better....big brushes paint big areas and small brushed paint small areas...
canvas (remember the smaller the canvas the harder it is to paint) I would suggest 16 by 20 or something close to that.
matt medium paint: a big tube of white and black
or if you want to use oils – it must be water based set plus extra white or black
For paint colors, John suggests:
green - hookers green if available
burnt umber or burnt sienna
and any other color you like
a basic acrylic set will work!
No Fear Beginner's iPad Class
Did you receive an iPad as a gift, or got one because everyone says it's the best way to keep in touch? Then your 10 year old grandchild who set it up for you leaves after the summer and you're left wondering how to use the internet and get your mail? This class is for absolute beginners. Bring your iPad and explore in an easy, unstructured, safe place.
Do you have a small or large question about your Apple device... be it iPhone, iPad, iPod, or Mac laptop? Bring in your stuff and ask questions about syncing devices with the iCloud, or ask any Mac related question. The best thing about Apple devices is that they all talk to each other if you know how... limited to four people for each week, so call ahead and register.
