Paint First…Just Roses

June 30, 2018 @ 9:30 am – 3:30 pm

Let’s step it up….let’s go bigger!  Using 8″ x 10″ or if you are really brave, 11′ x 14′, 140 lb cold press watercolor sheets(or a watercolor block) to which we will be applying paint first, with a strategy in mind…  In celebration of The Portland Rose Festival, join Watercolorist and Mixed Media Artist, Sharla Sevy to paint “Just Roses!” Bring whatever references you have… garden books, magazines, etc. for inspiration.  Plan on completing one to two paintings.  All levels welcome.  Class will be held on Saturday, June 30 from 9:30 AM-3:30 PM at a cost of $60 that includes all instruction.  Participants should bring palette, brushes, watercolor paper and a rigid surface to which the watercolor paper will be adhered.  (we will forego stretching our watercolor paper, but will adhere it to a support board.) Sharla will have extra palettes, brushes and various tools for use in class.  Additionally, sheets of 11″ x 14″ watercolor paper will be available for purchase at $2.50 per sheet.  Again, all levels are welcome.  bring lunch or a snack.  At least 5 students are required to hold the class.
