UPCOMING EVENTS AND WATERCOLOR WORKSHOPS--

March 10, 2024 (Sunday), 12:00-1:30 p.m., Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton, MD.  "Watercolor With a Twist--Painting With Food!"  This workshop is all about watercolor paint—with a twist!  Instead of standard paint, we’ll supplement our pallet with various food items to create natural colors on our watercolor paper.  We’ll blend paprika with water to paint aromatic chili peppers.  We’ll brush extra black coffee into our coffee cup ink sketch, add real cream, and watch the magic happen!  We’ll use real cinnamon on our cinnamon toast painting, and experiment with the effects of salt, lemon juice, and alcohol on wet paint.  Adults 13+, wine will be served, and no one will tell you to stop playing with your food!

March 28, 2024 (Thursday), Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton, 4:00-5:30 p.m.  "The Small World of Watercolor."  Broad sweeping watercolor landscapes are fun and live large in the art world.  But working small is also an adventure.  In this workshop, we’ll embrace the small by placing a grid of tape on our watercolor paper to create multiple small white squares. We’ll unleash our inner artist and fill these mini squares with quick, intuitive ink sketches that can be concrete or abstract to suit your doodling style.  Once adorned, we’ll enhance each space with watercolor.  And the best part comes last when we remove the tape to reveal a work of magnificent multiple mini masterpieces!  Adult beginners, and wine will be served!

April 7, 2024, 6:00-7:30 p.m., Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton, "Watercolor: Just Scratching the Surface."   A challenge of the watercolor medium is retaining the pure white of the paper. Unlike other paint types that are opaque and can be layered, white watercolor paint is seldom successful in achieving bright white when layered over watercolor paint. This workshop will experiment with an unusual method of painting our 100% cotton paper and, once dry, using a tool to scratch the surface revealing the white and creating interesting texture. We’ll also use our scratch tool on wet paint to create depressions. Adults 13+
