NEW Art Classes and Workshops 

November 25, 2020

AgeWell at the JCC presents two new art programs:
Introduction to Watercolors & Exploring its Possibilities
Robert Bowden, Instructor

It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or experienced artist.  These classes will be about the basic aspects of “how to do it”.

Watercolor, a sometimes daunting mixture is a unique medium. In this class, method and process will be the main focus as well as using materials to the best advantage. Color mixing, drawing, and composition will be discussed and demonstrated.  Because this class is in the winter and taking place indoors, subject matter will include still life, the figure and portraiture, and interior space.

4 Wednesdays, 9:30 am-12 pm, January 29, February 5, 12, & 19, Robinson Building Art Room.

$125/JCC Members or AgeWell at the JCC Members – includes materials; $150/non-members. Includes materials
