Loosen up and try a bold approach to watercolor still life. The fruits of fall will be the focus of this workshop. Mary Ann Heinzen teaches by first demonstrating and then providing support, while students paint their own interpretations of the subject. The abundance of the fall harvest will be the still life arrangement. Beginners are welcome. While basics such as drawing skills, design, and composition are always included; the emphasis will be on enjoying this exciting medium. There are some materials for use at the Art Loft, but students are encouraged to bring their own materials. A supply list is available.
