Watercolor Painting is an exciting medium; it flows and moves and does beautiful things. Instructor Mary Laury has been recognized for her work by the Maine Arts Commission. Workshop participants will do landscapes and seascapes in this 4 session course. If you have never painted in watercolors we will start at the beginning. If you have painted before, you will pick up some new tips and tricks as well. We all learn together! We'll begin with a demo and lesson. Weather permitting, we will go outside for plein air painting. This Inn has a breathtaking view, visible from the lawn, porch, and parlor. Later in the week we'll finish up with show and tell. We will do studies of sky, water, and rocks, culminating in a finished painting (or two) of a seascape. Materials will be provided, but bring what you have. Mary will contact each participant with a list of optional supplies. For more about Mary visit her website https://www.marylaury.com/
Instructor tells stories about calligraphy, the writing styles related to Chinese ancient four proverbs---Four Treasures of Chinese Calligraphy. Write a few characters in different styles on a piece of paper. Students will be given a Chinese name in class to copy onto their own 'seal' (Make sure to practice drawing your Chinese name over and over again before doing the seal signature.) This is a fun activity! The best way to learn how to do the ink brush stroke fundamentals is to practice different stroke exercises: vertical, horizontal, dots, lines, hooks, etc. Practice the stroke of your Chinese name. Students prepare their final projects with the ink brush techniques they have learned. Classes are for ALL LEVELS of experience and will be held in-person.
