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!

July 19, 2024, 6:15-8:00 p.m. at the Towson Arts Collective Gallery, 210 W. Pennsylvania Avenue in Towson.  "The Beautiful Transparency of Watercolor!"

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 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.  Adults 13+ all materials are provided, and there will be wine!

August 4, 2024, 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.at Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton, MD.  "Keeping It Loose -- Painting Trees!"   Trees are a beautiful subject for watercolor, and there are a variety of ways to paint them.  In this workshop, we’ll “keep it loose” with two different techniques.  First, we’ll use a mop brush to create a lush willow tree with sweeping branches of green and yellow. We’ll then use oil pastels to add depth and highlights to the sunswept foliage.  Our second project will be a wet-in-wet technique to create a forest grove and, once dry, we’ll use a scratching technique to reveal the white of the watercolor paper creating highlights of branches and tree trunks.  Bring your imagination and a relaxed wrist for a fun workshop! All materials will be provided, including wine!

Watercolor Workshop "Fall Leaf Relief!" Saturday, October 12, 10:00 a.m., Manor Mill Gallery, Monkton.

In this workshop we’ll use a fun and interesting technique to create a watercolor “relief” painting with Fall leaves and flat seed pods we’ll collect on the Manor Mill grounds!  After our leaves are gathered, we’ll return to the classroom to lay out our relief painting and decide on our color scheme.  Once designed, we’ll add paint to the paper and press our leaves onto the paint with a rolling pin. When the leaf relief is dry, we’ll add delicate lines with waterproof ink to highlight leaf veins and other details.  All painting materials are provided, including beveled mats so participants can frame their creations!
