This class is for the beginner or the artist wanting to expand and develop their knowledge in the area of watercolor.

When:  Tues. Mornings, July 10,17,24, & 31
Time:  10 am – 12 pm

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

On May 9, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation establishing Mother’s Day, a national holiday to be celebrated annually on the second Sunday of May. The woman responsible for its inception was Anna Jarvis (1864–1948), who wanted to memorialize her own mother and as a result saw the value in honoring all mothers. In Britain, Mother’s Day is celebrated in mid-Lent as Mothering Sunday. During the Middle Ages a custom developed of allowing those who had moved away to visit their home parishes and their mothers on Laetare Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Lent. Many other countries also celebrate the holiday on this date.

When considering a gift for Mom think of the gallery, Missouri Artist on Main.
