For beginning painters and beyond, discover the amazing characteristics of the watercolor medium by experimenting with its fluid nature. On Wednesday, August 5 at 6 PM, local artist Tif Farmakis-Day will lead us in a virtual watercolor class. Working from observation and the imagination, students will learn to “let loose,” relax and embrace the process while creating their own floral watercolor piece. Techniques covered will include “alla prima” and the painterly style - letting the paint flow while simultaneously controlling it and taking advantage of “happy accidents.” In our virtual Zoom classroom, we will follow along with Tif as she demonstrates creating a watercolor iris, or you can paint your own floral arrangement. The photo reference Tif works from along with paints, brushes, and watercolor paper will be available for pick up at the library prior to the workshop. Be amazed at what you can create with just a few simple brushstrokes! To see Tif's amazing art, check out her website at www.tifdoesart.com Register to attend this program on our website: www.nesmithlibrary.org/calendar and Adult Programming Librarian Maria will follow up with you about picking up your supplies.
This virtual workshop is for Nesmith Library card holders ages 18 and up, and supplies are limited to the first 20 registrants. If you register after all of our supply kits are reserved, you are still welcome to attend the virtual program using your own watercolors to follow along!
