Plein Air Watercolor Sketchbook Adventures with Bill Paarlberg

Six Saturday afternoons, July 1 to Aug 5 from 4 to 7 pm

*There must be a minimum of 4 people signed up by June 28 for the class to go forward* If participation is not met, the course will be canceled so grab a friend today and sign up because there are limited spots!

This class is for people with at least a little watercolor experience who want to sketch outdoor scenes and then paint them. Each week we will sketch and paint a different scene near the Carey Cottage. The emphasis will be on fast and fun ways to express what you see. We will learn about watercolor techniques and tools, as well as a little basic perspective and composition. Demonstrations will be in pencil, pen, and watercolor. All levels of experience are welcome. Creek Farm, owned and protected by the Forest Society since 2000, provides a perfect 35 acre source of inspiration.  We look forward to hosting you!
