TWO DAY WORKSHOP– Friday and Saturday
DATES: November 10-11,23 Time: 10-4p $195/200
Lee Ricks is an award winning South Texas Artist with a love of the beauty of Nature. This coastal Theme Watercolor Workshop will allow you the opportunity to gather around and watch Lee paint a small portion of the painting. Then you will paint that same part and Lee will be available for guidance. You will proceed through the day like this, and at the end of the day you should have a finished painting.
All students will receive a transfer sketch and materials list ahead of time and arrive at class with it already drawn onto your watercolor paper.
Friday we will be doing the vintage Port A scene (below)
Saturday will be Mexico scene with fountain & burro
Please arrive Friday with your sketch already transferred (traced) onto your watercolor paper so we can get to painting! Materials list available from Art Center
