Beginning Watercolors

Local artist Susan Brightman will be teaching a six week beginning watercolor class at Pine River Library each Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., starting June 11 and ending July 16. This class will consist of six weeks of basic watercolor techniques including learning to mix a variety of colors using warm and cool primary colors (red, yellow & blue). Participants will make color charts, create washes and gradations with pigment & water, and work on basic composition techniques. Attendees will finish with a project to take home. This class will provide all the necessary materials to get you on your way to explore watercolor painting. The course costs $90 per student OR $35 per student if you already have supplies. The price includes watercolor paints, brushes, brush holder, watercolor paper, gator board and a palette.

Pre-registration required. Checks should be made to Susan Brightman.

About Susan:

Many years ago I began to blend my love of the mountain landscape with my experience as a graphic artist.  Creating original pieces of art using a variety of mediums has provided me with my form of expression.   My paintings often capture the quiet beauty of nature or the serenity of a village landscape.  I explore the inner and outer beauty of life in search of meaning and fresh ideas.
I am currently living in the Durango area.  I’m retired from Park City Signs a company I owned and operated for 35 years in Park City, Utah.  I am currently active in the Pine River Public Library and the Ignacio Community Library volunteering artistically and administratively.
