As one of the feature artists at HorseSpirit Art
s Gallery show "Lines and Curves" I did a demonstration of watercolor painting at the gallery. There were five people who attended and to my surprise most stayed for the full three hour session. I am used to people coming buy, watching for 15 minutes, then wandering off to check out other things in the gallery, but this set of people were full of questions. I love it when that happens so I know that what I am sharing is what they want to understand.
I demonstrated four different paintings at different stages of completeness so I could show how watercolors build from one layer to the next. The gallery manager captured some of the session on video that I am sharing here.
In the last few months the gallery had asked me to return as a teacher in their classroom on the second floor of the gallery. When four the those who watched the demonstration also asked Robin Holliday, owner and curator of HorseSpirit Arts Gallery, whether I had classes at the gallery, she asked again about teaching.
I'm happy to say we found some dates that worked for me and the gallery, so I'll be teaching a Watercolor Studio class starting in January. There will be four 3-hour sessions, where artists can work on their own projects under my guidance. I will do demonstrations both to teach some skills and to help give examples the students request to assist with their paintings. Learn more at HorseSpirit Arts Gallery's Eventbrite site.
