Painters, Listen up!

Gee, they look as if they are having fun, but we weren't thinking of that kind of painter.

Gee, they look as if they are having fun, but we weren’t thinking of that kind of painter.

Have you ever wondered if you could paint something beautiful?

No, not paint a house, fence, or your face, but put paint a picture on paper and have it look like something:

  • recognizable

  • fabulous

  • worthy of sharing with family and friends

Well, here is your chance!

On Saturday, November 17, from 9-11 am AND Monday, December 3, from 9-11 am, Ridgefield’s renowned artist, Kathy Winters, will expertly guide you in creating your very own Christmas cards in watercolor, ready for personalizing, signing and sending.

No experience in painting is necessary, and all materials will be provided. She will hold the workshop in her downtown Ridgefield studio.

The size of this workshop is limited, so CALL Kathy NOW to register  (360-887-2160). She can answer any questions you may have as well.

The fee for the class is $45 ($40 if you’re a member of the Friends of Ridgefield Library).

You could sign up for both! $80 ($75 for FOL members). All proceeds benefit the Library Building Fund and current library programs.

Give it a try! This may be the beginning of something really wonderful!

I don’t know. Clearly, it’s fabulous. And my friends and family will be so hoppy that I’m finally doing something constructive with my nervous energy. But it’s supposed to be carrots. lots and lots of carrots. I don’t even get hungry when I look at it …

As always, thank you to everyone who supports the library by attending these FUNdraising programs! 

What Happens to Paint When it Gets Mixed with Water on Paper?

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).

Anyone can paint this beautiful watercolor under Kathy's expert guidance.

The event is called Sip’n Paint, held at Woodland’s Fat Moose restaurant (1382 Lewis River Road), Thursday, September 29 from 7 to 9 pm. Cost is $45 per person and half the money collected will go to the Ridgefield Library building fund.

Call Shirley, 619-368-2715, to register.  Call Kathy (360-887-2160) with questions.

 

If you think this is beyond your abilities to paint, then you're wrong! Kathy will show you how to release your inner artist!

The second opportunity is another Paint with Kathy class held on Saturday, October 8 from 10 am to noon at the Ridgefield Community Center. This is the second in a series of paint classes, proceeds of which benefit the library building fund. Cost is $45 per person and there is a limit of twelve people. All materials are provided, and we welcome beginners.

Call Kathy NOW (360-887-2160) to register. 

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!
