pr1Our newest Board member, Pat Rollie, will be offering a WaterColor class on Thursdasy from 1.30 — 4 pm, October 23 — November 20, 2014.

Class fee:

$100 if you bring your own materials


$65 additional if you need materials provided

button (1)

Registration ends October 14, 2014

Class size is limited to ten students

My goal is for each student to leave the classroom feeling brave, excited and moving one step closer to becoming an accomplished watercolor artist!”- Instructor Pat Rollie


In this workshop, confidence and skills in watercolor painting are developed through lecture, demonstration and hands on class exercises.

Topics : the basics of paper, brushes, paint and subject matter. We will explore the characteristics of color and the variety of painting techniques unique to watercolor.

Supplies –

Brushes: brushes range in materials and price. It is not necessary at this point to buy the most expensive 100% natural sable or squirrel brushes but DO NOT buy cheap brushes either. Synthetic brushes are good and reasonably priced. Good brands are Dick Blick or Robert Simmons

#6 round, #10 round, ½ inch flat

Paper: Good paper is equally as important as quality paints and brushes. I suggest:

Arches cold pressed watercolor block size 9” x 12” or 10” x 14”. This is a block of 20 sheets rather than larger individual sheets. It is designed for you to paint right on the block of sheets to give stability to the paper.

Paint: Please buy artist’s grade tubes- do not buy student grade! Any brand is fine as long as it is Artist’s grade. Windsor Newton is a very good brand and you can buy the smaller tubes to begin. (5ml)

Colors: Cadmium Red medium, Burnt Sienna, Sap green, French Ultramarine blue ( ultramarine blue), New Gamboge (gamboge)

Palette: A good palette with a cover is needed if you are going to continue your journey in watercolor. The best palette is a John Pike Palette. If you decide at the end of the class that this is also the end of your watercolor experience I will buy your palette from you if it is a John Pike.

Other misc items to bring to class: Paper towels, a cup or small container for water, a small new sponge still hard. Do not wet the sponge, bring it still new and stiff. A spray bottle, small hair dryer. A pencil, eraser and small notebook.
