Friday, May 31, 2024, 6:00-7:30 p.m., Watercolor Workshop at Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton, Maryland: 

"Watercolor Birds"

We see birds in our environment every day, but drawing and painting birds gives us the gift of better understanding their structure and beautiful colors.  In this workshop, we’ll take a close-up look at birds, sketch them on our watercolor paper, and blend our paints to match the bright or subtle hues of their feathers.  All materials are provided, including wine!  (Sorry, this class is filled.)

June 30, 2024, 4:30-6:00 p.m. at Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton, Maryland.  "The Magical Transparency of Watercolor "

This class is back by popular demand!  

One of the hardworking tools in a watercolorist’s toolbox is applying and then lifting wet paint off the paper to create a beautiful transparency effect. In this workshop, we’ll brush rich paint into flower petals and leaves and then gently mop up the paint to reveal amazing sheer pastels. We’ll embellish the details of our paintings with black waterproof ink.

All materials provided, adults 13+ All materials are supplied including wine!
For adults 13+

July 14, 2024, 4:30-6:00 p.m. at Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton, Maryland.  "Paint Your Own Decorative Mat Border"

The pure white mat on a watercolor painting serves to highlight and enhance the painting itself.  But in this workshop, we’ll paint our own colorful custom floral borders on white beveled 8 x 10 mats.  We’ll first look at examples and ideas, and then practice painting flowers before painting on the mats.  Your personalized mats can then be used to frame your own photograph, painting, wedding invitation, or other memento.  These will be great to keep or to create a unique gift.  Each participant will paint two mats to take home with a protective sleeve and backing. All materials provided, including wine!
