Area artist Rick Weholt will present an introductory workshop covering opaque watercolor techniques on Saturday, April 28. The class, entitled “Great Gouache”, will take place at the Craigmont Community Hall in Craigmont, next to the city park. The hall will be open at 9:30 and the class will last from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. A donation of $20.00 payable at the door will go to support the Prairie Art general fund.
Interested artists should bring their usual watercolor supplies, including opaque watercolors. Prairie Art Assn. will have free supplies available for those who don’t already have opaque watercolors but would like to “try out” the medium. Brushes used for acrylics may be used and watercolor paper makes a good painting surface.
The instructor will demonstrate how to apply the medium in a manner similar to transparent watercolor, as well as techniques more used with oils or acrylics. Class exercises, on-site project painting and discussion will complete the session. Bring your sack lunch and join the fun. For more information, contact Linda Stubbers 208-962-3346 (L2stubb@mtida.net) or Edith Leachman 208-962-5498 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
