“Interpreting Winter’s Beauty in Watercolor”
Wednesdays, 10am-Noon, January 7-February 11, 2015
Hone your watercolor skills by depicting the unique beauty of winter, such as the bright light reflected from fresh snow or the warm glow emanating from a cozy fireplace, scampering winter creatures, winter’s solitude or the swishes of a crowded ice skating rink. Learning about watercolor is the most popular class here at the Staunton Augusta Art Center, thanks to Peg Sheridan’s patient, individualized instruction and the friendly, fun classmates. Classes meet on Wednesdays, 10am-Noon, in the R.R. Smith Center for History and Art at 20 S. New Street across from the public parking garage in historic downtown Staunton. Pre-registration is required by calling the Art Center at 540-885-2028. Members receive a significant discount ~ $160 non-members/$144 members’ rate. A materials list for watercolor classes follows.
