process of planning and preparing an underpainting

July 10 – 31 – Beginning and Intermediate Watercolors with Joyce Rothermich! (Four Classes)

This class is for the beginner or the artist wanting to expand and develop their knowledge in the area of watercolor. Learn the elusive qualities, the vitality and its capacity to adapt to the visual responses of the individual artist.  You will become familiar with the medium through a “hands-on” approach.  Monitoring and guidance through each exercise and painting will be provided by the instructor.
When:  Tues. Mornings, July 10,17,24, & 31
Time:  10 am – 12 pm
Cost:  $70 – A supply list will be provided.
 
July 12-13 – Landscape Workshop with award winning artist, Maggie McCarthy!
  
The focus of this workshop will be on landscapes. The idea is to give the viewer more than a description of a place or scene.  “Feeling” is what it’s all about.  Knowing what to do to make an individual piece come alive and speak to the viewer is the key.  Understand vistas, trees, water fields, snow and clouds are covered(as much as we can) but all this flows first from an understanding of landscape and successful composition.
When:  Thurs./Friday – July 12-13, 2018
Time:  9 am – 4 pm
Cost:  $185

St. Valentine is believed to have been a Roman priest who was martyred on February 14 around 270. How he became the patron saint of lovers remains a mystery, but one theory is that the Church used the day of St. Valentine’s martyrdom in an attempt to Christianize the old Roman Lupercallia, a pagan festival held around the middle of February.

In the late 1300s, we begin to find the first clear references to a tradition relating February 14, St. Valentine’s Day, to romantic love. Poems were composed for the event, the earliest being Chaucer’s Parliament of Fowls(c.1381), about rival bird-suitors quarreling on Valentine‘s Day. The first Valentine’s Day cards were handmade, but by the early nineteenth century, printed cards were common in England. When this fashion was exported to the United States in the 1840s, a veritable Valentine mania broke out.
