With Sharron McBride 

Date: Thursday, November 16, 2017

Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Class Info:

For the class this coming Thursday, Sharron will be showing us how to paint with watercolour on wood.  Using watercolour ground allows you to increase the places you can use your watercolours.  The paint reacts differently on the ground than on paper so a few tips are handy to know.

PLEASE RSVP for this class.  We will paint on a board that needs to be prepped 72 hours in advance.  Boards will be available at the class, but you must let us know by Monday evening if you are coming so we know how many to purchase and treat.....I will try to have a few extras. The boards will be $3.50 (cost of boards only) and the AW will purchase the watercolour ground.  If you have watercolour ground at home you can bring your own treated board.

Please bring your usual watercolour supplies (paints, brushes, water containers, paper towel, Kleenex) along with a pencil (a harder one like an HB or F doesn't smear), an eraser and any other items you would normally use.  A simple style works best so if you have a photo for drawing you like, bring it along.
