Are you looking to further your oil or acrylic painting ability? Then this is the in online painting class for you.

Along with color mixing, one goal of instruction will address the importance of creating a sketch and dynamic composition in paint.

Writers Group August Meeting – All Welcome!

August 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

NEW! Join us for free monthly meetings & creative writing discussion. Advanced registration preferred.
We will provide open discussions at our monthly meetings. Everyone’s voice will be heard.

August's Writing Prompt:
Two prompt choices:
First: Recently I listened to a Columbia University interview, dated, October 18, 2007, featuring Dr. Oliver Sacks. I followed Dr. Sacks for many years, and found his work most helpful, cautiously clear, and sincere, with humor filling many paragraphs. He was a brilliant neurologist; He died August 30, 2015.
The topic of the interview was, “Why the Brain Loves Music”.
I’ll add a comment by Dr. Sacks:
Music has a unique power to alter the brain in remarkable and complex ways, and we humans are a musical species no less than a linguistic one.
The fascinating interview lasts about one-and a half-hours. However, whether, or not you watch the Columbia Univ. interview, please share your thoughts on music’s benefits, or lack thereof, in your life.
Second: Childhood memories, what comes to mind? Write about it!
For me, “I Remember Mama” a popular CBS TV series, presented from 1949 through 1957, featured a Norwegian immigrant family, who lived in San Francisco, called to me every Friday night. The episodes reflected their hard times, along with the love and dependence they shared with one another, Mama and Papa, dedicated loving parents, along with three-children, Katrin, Dagmar, and Nels. I watched it every week!
*As always, if you’re working on a different subject for your poetry or prose composition/submission, share it with our group!

in-person: Watercolor Journaling Class – all level welcome – with Rosemary Connelly

August 24 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Cost: $75 Members, $94 Non-Members

Please register by August 22, 2022.

In this high-tech world we live in, the art of watercolor journaling is about as low-tech as you can get. The materials are simple and light, and it can be done anywhere, from your kitchen table, backyard porch, on a trip to exotic places or just around the neighborhood.

Watercolor Journaling is the art of observing and capturing the world around you in pen and watercolor paints in a blank journal and writing down your thoughts and observations along with your impressions. More than a sketchbook or a written journal, it combines both in a fun and rewarding activity.

The art of watercolor journaling is related to Plein Air Painting, (done on location) which has increased in popularity in recent years, as competitions and Paint Outs are held everywhere there are subjects to paint. But one of the joys of watercolor journaling is its non-competitive aspect. There is no pressure to perform, no higher goal than satisfying yourself.

    Painting a la Georgia O Keefe
    Practice shape, form , mixing colors and composition in gouache or acrylics, using Georgia O Keefe as an inspiration.


    Gouache – sometimes referred to as opaque watercolor, starts out similarly to watercolor. The pigment ratio in gouache is usually much greater than in watercolor and solid white pigment are incorporated. These factors give gouache a much heavier texture and higher opacity than watercolor alone.
    But if you feel more comfortable painting in Acrylic that is fine too.

    Students will learn to practice shape ,color , form and composition using gouache paints (opaque watercolor) with various subject matter. In each class , we will also focus on different styles which will evolve from abstract through impressionism to superrealism.

    Bring your own supplies (gouache paints, paper, brushes, heavy card stock or Bristol board replaces canvas, for Acrylic Painting bring Acrylic colors, canvas, brushes, paper towels, etc.), or rent a kit from the instructor for a fee of $15.
    Please let us know ahead of the class that you will need to rent a kit so the instructor will have enough supplies available.

    Reference photos and sample paintings will be provided as examples.

    Gouache – sometimes referred to as opaque watercolor, starts out similarly to watercolor. The pigment ratio in gouache is usually much greater than in watercolor and solid white pigment are incorporated. These factors give gouache a much heavier texture and higher opacity than watercolor alone.
    But if you feel more comfortable painting in Acrylic that is fine too.

    Students will learn to practice shape ,color , form and composition using gouache paints (opaque watercolor) with various subject matter. In each class , we will also focus on different styles which will evolve from abstract through impressionism to superrealism.

    Bring your own supplies (gouache paints, paper, brushes, heavy card stock or Bristol board replaces canvas, for Acrylic Painting bring Acrylic colors, canvas, brushes, paper towels, etc.), or rent a kit from the instructor for a fee of $15.
    Please let us know ahead of the class that you will need to rent a kit so the instructor will have enough supplies available.

    Reference photos and sample paintings will be provided as examples.

    Painting the Delmarva Eastern Shore, a slower more peaceful way of life. Away from the hustle of city life we put brush to paper and start to create. Listening to seagulls and the twinkling of waterways, and painting the scene, translating it to your vision. Seeing the sun reflecting and gleaming on the waters and painting it by using dry brush stokes to make that simmering water glimmer. We will learn to build a painting in three values from light to dark and finish with dots and dashes.

    Watch watercolor demonstrations and try your hand as you paint along with Gerilyn! Have fun while you learn to capture the "local color" in watercolors.
