Mixed Media
Watercolor,WC Pencil, and Acrylic
August 29  • starting at 10 am
Harvest Fun

Using a watercolor pencil is a great way to start a painting.  With the addition of only water to the watercolor pencil line, you can start to develop the basic values in your subject.  Adding gold and black acrylic can create a dramatic contrast that will give you a bold start on a dynamic semi-abstract painting.  Feel free to add cocktail napkins, oriental papers, newspapers, stencils, and anything you ‘d like to enrich the surface with wonderful textures.  You will need YES glue, acrylic paints, watercolor paints, a black watercolor pencil, tape and paper towels and any collage items you like.  Also, 300-lb. watercolor paper is best for a collage ground.  Tracings available for 8x11 and 1/4 sheet (10x14), but feel free to draw this painting any size you like.  We will read the instructions at 10 a.m.  There can be limited instruction from participating artists.  Cost of Open Paint Wednesdays is $5, which may be applied toward any purchase that day at Town Hall Arts.
Watercolor
September 5 • starting at 10 am
Compose from the Top

Try this unique placement of your focal point, pioneered by Cézanne.  Have more space for motion in your composition.  Bring your own photo or work from example.  Bring your own watercolor supplies, including tape and paper towels.  We will read from a handout at 10 a.m.  There can be limited instruction from participating artists. Cost of Open Paint Wednesdays is $5, which may be applied toward any purchase that day at Town Hall Arts.

Acrylics
September 12  starting at 10 am 
Paint Acrylic Two Different Ways

Bring your usual acrylic painting supplies, 14x14 canvas (available from Larry), spritz bottle, and tape and paper towels.  There can be limited instruction from participating artists.
