BEYOND BASIC WATERCOLORS WORKSHOP WITH ARTIST PAT VILES

Wednesday, April 24 - Friday, April 26 (Daily)
9:30-4:00 Daily (Bring a Lunch)
Fee: $200; HMA Members $175
Supplies Included

In this 3 day workshop, participants will explore creative methods of watermedia application onto Yupo paper. YUPO is the 100% recyclable, waterproof, tree-free Synthetic Paper that holds up to watercolors well by using spray varnishes to retard fading and protecting the finished painting. You will learn how to mask off designs with clear adhesive backed shelf paper, use alcohol to bring out more representational subjects, use different widths of tape for interesting lines, etc. It is a very interesting and fun medium to work with. You’ll enjoy the company of fellow artist and use top quality watercolors for your work.

Registration Deadline: Monday, April 15

SCHOLARSHIP MONEY AVAILABLE FOR CLASSES

Thanks to the LB Lane Family Foundation and Kulynych Family Foundation, HMA has scholarships available for adults and children who normally can't afford to take classes. One student recipient stated, "The reason I want to attend the Facial Facades camp is because it would help me to achieve my future dream of becoming a beautician. I will get the start I need to begin my path into the world of beauty. One day, I may be able to help people who cannot afford expensive makeovers. I also hope this would be the beginning of some new friendships."
