Two Day Watercolor Mastery for Beginners

& Advanced Students

Have you always thought it would be wonderful to be a

painter, but have had little success? This is the opportunity

to make it happen. I am an active, hands-on, clear instructor

who will demonstrate and guide you individually through

every step as we work together to complete a masterful,

ready-to-frame watercolor. You will learn the “tricks of the

trade” to create magical effects. I am confident that you will

have a blast AND walk out with a beautiful, professional-

looking painting. There will be a 1 hour lunch break each

day. A $35 materials fees is due to instructor at the first class

meeting OR please check the DAC website for supply list if

you plan to purchase your own supplies.

Flighty Flowers

Learn a unique way to make beautiful collage papers and

use them to create a floral composition of your own. This

technique will force you to be loose and expressive as well

as original. If you are quick, you may be able to complete

more than one painting. The photograph is one sample of

the possibilities. The instructor will provide the materials for

the collage papers.

Paint and Collage with Bernice Koff

This class will introduce new students to the use of collage

to enhance paintings done in watercolor and/or acrylic. It

will also strengthen and deepen experienced students’ skills

in mixed media artwork. Time will be spent on technical

aspects of making collage paintings work as uniquely

personal and successful works of art. In addition, significant

emphasis will be on evaluating how, when and why to use

collage elements in a painting, when it is not called for, and

how to evaluate your own work so as improve it when working

alone. Some prior painting experience would be useful, but

is not required. Please check DAC website for supply list. This

class is done in partnership with OLLI at Duke. This class will

take place at the Durham Arts Council Building.
