WinterScapes in Watercolor

Join us at ArtPlay for a Saturday afternoon of watercolor painting, community & creativity, inspired by beautiful winter-scape scenery that surrounds us in the Blue Ridge Mountains. In this class, you’ll experience the wonders of layering transparent colors to create an image of our beautiful mountains, noticing the gorgeous hues of this time of year that highlight the contours and shapes of trees and mountains. Local artist Casi Fordham will guide you into the world of watercolors as you learn the joy of layering and building up a colorful landscape. We’ll start with a step-by-step watercolor demo where you will warm-up with Casi’s guidance, and then transition into landscape painting. We’ll explore basic techniques, break down the elements of a landscape and build values. Please bring a reference photo as a muse (magazine page, photo from a hike or other mountain-scape winter photo, etc.). A warm beverage will be served. All materials included. No experience needed. Come Play!
