Watercolor Workshop with Pamela Haddock

Date: Wednesday, February 20 & Thursday, February 21 (10am-4pm)
Cost: $130 ($125 for BRAC Members)
Instructor: Pamela Haddock

Pamela, whose beautiful paintings you will recall from our last exhibit in the BRAC Studio, teaches by demonstrating techniques, encouraging preliminary drawings to establish composition, and showing how to manage the water on the paper and in the brush. Painting "wet into wet" allows the diffusion and glow that only transparent watercolors can exhibit. Pamela will encourage a limited palette to improve the continuity of the painting and familiarize students with color properties and possible mixes. Students will work from reference photos, transfer drawings to paper, and use fresh-from-tube pigments to duplicate value, using the fewest strokes possible.
Two days of priceless instruction------You will never want to put your brush down again! A materials list will be provided to enrollees.

Coil Creations

Date: Saturday, March 2 (10am-4pm)
Cost: $45 ($40 for BRAC Members)
Instructor: Wendy Converse

Spend your Saturday in the clay studio learning a traditional hand-building technique to create unique coil pots and sculptures. Coil building has been used to shape clay into vessels for many thousands of years in locations ranging from Africa to Greece and China to New Mexico. We'll begin by looking at the history of this unique art form, then begin work on our own designs. Coils will be hand rolled, then stacked, pinched, pushed and locked in place to create interesting silhouettes for our functional and sculptural designs. Students will complete at least 2 projects over the course of the day. We'll take a break for lunch around 12:30. Class fee includes all materials, bisque and glaze firing.
