Join us for this in-person watercolor painting workshop with Stefanie Taranto. This class is designed to introduce the joy of watercolor. Stefanie will lead attendees step-by-step in painting a winter-themed still-life in watercolor. If you have dabbled in watercolor before and have a set and some watercolor brushes, please bring them. Brewster Ladies' Library will provide some basic materials to borrow if you do not have any. For ages 16 and up.
Suggested supplies to bring, if you have them: Pencil 2b or HB, sketchbook, eraser (Staedtler Mars Plastic are great), watercolor brushes (bring what you have), a watercolor set (Van Gogh half pan sets are nice, as well as Sakura Koi tube sets for entry level, or Daniel Smith or Winsor & Newton for professional level), watercolor paper, 2-3 small or Solo cups for water, paper towels, blue or masking tape or artists tape, a Masonite board to tape your work to (or equivalent), a palette or paper plates.
