Plein Air Watercolor Class with Sharon Pitts
Dates:Tuesdays, November 7, 14, 21 & 28
Time: 1:00 – 3:30 PM
Instructor: Sharon Pitts
Description: Autumn is an intriguing time of year for painters. Looking around the beautiful Van Vleck Gardens we see a wide variety of plants and trees that initially seem to be waning. Looking more closely we see gorgeous subdued colors and changing shapes that are fascinating in their retreat from the lushness of summer.
Each class includes demonstrations and personal attention for each student. Some watercolor experience is desirable. We will work in the Van Vleck’s Raymond Family Education Center in case of inclement weather. Supply list will be sent after registration.
Fee: 4-class Series: $200 Members / $225 Non-Members
Registration is required HERE by Tuesday, October 31st. There are no drop-ins for this class.
