Inspired by Guadalupe River Park Historic Orchard, Art Specialist Heather Engle will teach participants how to paint by controlling water and pigment levels to explore variations in color and light. Other topics covered include primary colors, secondary colors, and watercolor mixing techniques.


Week 1: Introduction (learn the basics and how to translate a photo into your own art).

Week 2: Local and in season fruit still life.


Wednesday, July 20th & 27th  

Ages 18+

6:30pm to 8:30pm

$30/members, $40/non-members


Participants please bring watercolor paper, a painting surface (easel, clipboard, or sturdy piece of cardboard), water container, and masking tape. We do have beginner’s watercolor pigments and brushes but participants are encouraged to bring their own watercolor pigments (minimum of red, yellow, blue, black, and brown) so you get comfortable with your own materials. You’ll likely want to work more when you get home!
