Painting a masterpiece takes talent. Everyone has talent. You just have to believe in yourself!

What happens to paint when it gets mixed with water on a paper?

If you guessed any of the following, then you have the potential to be talented a watercolor artist:

  1. The paint gets drippy…or watery.
  2. The color of the paint lightens up.
  3. If any other colors are nearby, they glush* together to form new colors.
  4. Magical things like landscapes and other stuff can happen.

*Technically, not a word, but it really should be!

If you’re interested in painting, magic, and artistic expression, then have we got some opportunities for you!

Kathy Winters, Ridgefield’s own distinguished resident artist, is offering TWO (2) watercolor classes.

If you missed her first class in June, she is doing an encore of that class (and landscape, Misty Morning).

In art, as in life, it's important to get plenty of water!

In watercolor, as in life, it’s important to keep hydrated! She’s positively glushing! See? I told you it should be a word!
