The Artists’ Guild 2013 classes and workshops begin the week of January 7. The line up begins with Nancy Law’s class “You, Me and Acrylics” on Mondays from 1:30 – 3:30. In Nancy’s class you will dive into mixing colors and painting for fun in a casual atmosphere. If you are interested in learning to paint flowers, that’s what Nancy loves painting most. Cheryl Jorgensen, a talented and sought after island instructor, will be teaching watercolor painting classes beginning Wednesday, January 9. The title,” Watercolors: Putting Values into Your Paintings” aptly describes Cheryl’s emphasis in teaching budding and experienced painters alike how to create vibrantly colored watercolor paintings. An award-winning artist and long time Anna Maria Island resident, Cheryl has taught watercolor painting for over a decade and on the island for the more than five years. The class will be offered Wednesday mornings, 10 am – noon
Workshops being offered this season include Mark Polomchak’s “Painting Parrots in Watercolors”, January 31; Kay Johnson’s “Weave Your Own Basket” February 7; Jim Ladd’s “Adventures in Watercolor Painting on Yupo”, February 21; and Kathleen Masur’s “Painting a Silk Scarf”, March 14.
