May 17  SO YOU WANT TO TRY PLEIN AIRE PAINTING - FIXING AND FINISHING WHAT YOU'VE BEGUN
1pm to 4pm     All About Art Classroom     Sun City Hilton Head     $25

     We all have them - that stack of unfinished paintings sitting around your house in a drawer or box.  They’re not failed paintings, they just aren’t finished yet. Now is your chance to FIX AND FINISH those old dogs.  Often a painting just needs a little change in value or composition, a focal point or a glaze to go from dreary to dramatic. Bring two or three of your paintings that need help, and I’ll show you some techniques that can bring your creation back to life.  These techniques will work for any 2D medium, so bring the art supplies appropriate to the medium of the painting you want to fix and finish.  I’ll be doing my demonstrations in watercolor, but bring the medium of your choice, including watercolor, acrylic, collage, pencil or pastel. No oils please.  You can choose either one or both classes at $25 for each class.  Please indicate on your check which date(s) you plan to attend.  Space is limited to 12 students per class.  Register by check in the Sun City Hilton Head All About Art room.

Students will meet at the Southshore Center each morning for classroom instruction, then travel to one or more locations for outdoor painting. The last hour of the day will be spent back at the classroom to look and learn from each other’s work.This techniques class is for those with some watercolor experience. Demos will be in watercolor, but you are welcome to use other materials. A simple supply list will be provided with registration.
