Beginners Watercolor

Keith Whitelock will be teaching a watercolor class for the serious beginner to intermediate watercolorist. His class will go over materials and techniques to help you learn to express yourself with this beautiful, seemingly simple but hard to master medium. 

Wednesdays 5:30-7:30
July 8th-29th 
Tuition: $100 non-member, $90 members. 

Creative Writing Workshop

Susan Lewis Paciga with host weekly workshops which will incorporate both visual and verbal prompts for writing.  Students will do free and directed writing. Some of the exercises will come from The Artist's Way; having the book is good, but not necessary.  The workshop can be as student-driven as all are comfortable with. Those who wish to can share the writing performed during the workshop, but again, no one will be forced to. We can talk about whether we want to share works in progress, but that will not be the primary focus of the workshop.  This is for fun and to give writers a bit of a boost; it's not guaranteed to make anyone a published author! 

Wednesdays 5:00-7:30
July 8th- August 13th
