   Plein Air Workshop at Pemaquid Lighthouse

Session 2

Instructor: Mary Ann Heinzen

Date:  Friday, September 22, 2023  (Session 2)

Time:  10 am to 1 pm

Tuition:   Members  $65     Non-members  $80   

                    (tuition includes free entry to Pemaquid Park)

These classes will be plein air, outdoor workshops held at Pemaquid Point. Each class will start with a watercolor demonstration, after which, artists will work on their own, either the same view or one of their choosing.

The goal will be to limit detail and avoid overworking, making a simple, fresh statement to capture the moment. Artists are encouraged to use their own style and approach, from abstract to realism.

Mary Ann Heinzen is a seasoned watercolor instructor and will provide individual feedback and assistance throughout the workshop. In case of rain, class will be rescheduled. Supply lists are available upon registration. There are parking, restrooms and wonderful views at Pemaquid Point.

Adult Artists of all levels are welcome, including beginners!

October Watercolor Class

Watercolor: The Basics and Beyond
with Artist Margaret Dwyer

Whether you are a beginner, need a refresher, or building on your acquired skills, this class will jump start your relationship with watercolor. We will review color choices and core techniques during demonstrations. You will also be introduced to some tricks and shortcuts with naturalistic effects. We will apply these to landscape element studies such as sky, water, rock, moss, trees, etc…  Once you know some of the basics, put it all together and build a landscape with your own unique style. Many references will be on hand from books, photos, paintings and prints. Some of the techniques that we will cover include wet-into-wet, glazing, negative painting, lost & found edges, and more. Learn how to create textures, add depth, mood, and drama. You will be pleasantly surprised at how accessible this amazing medium really is!

Mondays, Oct.23 and Oct. 30th – 1:30-4:30    Cost: $130.00

A supply list will be supplied upon registration. Classes will be held at River Arts Gallery.
