1) Lou Haney of Second Street Gallery writes: Join Molly Herman, one of the exhibiting artists in the forthcoming Second Street Gallery exhibition, “Lady Painters: Inspired by Joan Mitchell,” for an Abstract Watercolor Painting Workshop. This hands-on workshop will take place at Common House on June 6 from 7-9 pm. (Note: this is a 21+ event)
Participants will learn about Joan Mitchell, a leading Second Generation Abstract Expressionist painter, as well as explore their own creative ideas in this class. Attendees will mine their own remembered and special landscapes and express them abstractly in a watercolor painting. You will be encouraged to experiment with new materials and ways of mark making.
$10 materials fee, FREE for members of Common House. Ages 21+ only please.
You can RSVP by emailing email@example.com.
2) Donna Brune writes: Two Rivers Art Workshops is sponsoring two workshops with Tom Lynch in late June. They will be in Fredericksburg at the Clarion Hotel on Rte. 17, just before the I 95 exits. The first workshop is a 4 day studio workshop, June 24-27 and the cost is $500. I plan to go with a friend but will arrive the 23rd. I don’t want to deal with Mon. morning traffic or any morning traffic in that area. The second is a 3 day plein air workshop from June 29-July 1. The cost for that workshop is $300. Rates at the Clarion Hotel are reasonable especially if you are old enough for the senior rate and/or have a Choice Hotel membership (easy to get).
Anyone who signs up for the studio workshop only and uses my name as a buddy will get 5 sheets of Gemini 300 lb. watercolor paper. You can even sign up without my name but bring a friend and you both will get the 5 free watercolor sheets. What a deal! That paper is worth $100 and is more than you will need for the studio workshop. I have attached a flyer–Tom Lynch Flyer–about the workshop from the workshop coordinator Janice Jones.
Other workshops offered by our members can be found under the “Workshops – Other” menu.
