Paint Your Way - Your Day
Here's a chance to pick the painting you want, on the day you want with the people you want and explore several watercolor techniques. You need not be an experienced painter to attend this class. Jean Apgar, noted water-colorist, will show you step by step how to paint using watercolor. Paintings are always drawn for you so you can concentrate solely on the techniques. All materials are included.
It's easy as 1,2,3:
1.Gather a group of participants from 2 to 5
2.Choose one of the twelve paintings shown in the images.
3. Email a few dates that will work for your group to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow 2 weeks before the choosen dates to allow for prep time.
Jean offers Friday or Saturday mornings 10 am to 12pm.
Each participant is $49.
Do not register until a date and time has been agreed upon.
Most paintings take 2 hours but a few take a bit longer or may require an underpainting (done by Jean before class) in order to insure painting completion. You will be notified ahead of time if this is the case with painting you have choosen.
Creating my art is as much a part of me as breathing. My inspiration comes from the small, even insignificant, things that surround us in everyday life. I earned my B.F.A. and M.A. degrees in painting from Northern Illinois University. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is included in private and corporate collections in the United States, Sweden, France, Luxembourg, Germany and Great Britain. My paintings were selected for the American Embassy Residences in Rangoon, Burma and Niger, Africa, under the Art in Embassies program initiated by President John F. Kennedy. I am listed in Who’s Who in American Art and Who’s Who in America, receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award. I co-authored the book, “Now What? This Art Business.” My work is included in the books, “The Best of Silk Painting,” and “The Fine Art of Painting on Silk”. I am represented by Abel Contemporary Gallery, Stoughton, WI, 317 Art Collective, Rockford, IL, and JR Finally Art, Rockton, IL and am a member of artists’ organizations including WAOW, TWSA, NWS, SPIN and the Art Guild of Rockford.
