Artist & Instructor Audra returns to Averill House Vineyard for a Summer Floral Watercolor Workshop & Wine Tasting: Expressive Watercolors With Flowers!
Saturday August 20th @6pm
Doors open at 5:45pm | Workshop starts at 6pm
Cost $47 per person
Includes: A 2-hour instructor lead workshop, materials/art supplies, and one(1) tasting flight of 4 AHV wines(21+ only) or a non-alcoholic beverage.
Designed for participants of all levels, fresh flowers will be the inspiration for this workshop. Audra will demonstrate various “fun” exercises geared to interpret flowers in a loose and expressive manner. Demonstrations and individual help will weave throughout the workshop, with an emphasis on letting the medium of watercolor lead the students to new adventures in watercolor. Some goals include “keeping the whites”, avoiding “mud”, intuitive color and composition. Participants will leave with at least one finished watercolor flower painting in this 2 hour painting adventure, one bookmark, and one small greeting card.
Meet Instructor Audra Saunders:
Audra is not only a successful and accomplished painter; she is also a veteran teacher. She currently is teaching her 17th year of art, photography and design at the high school level. She has also taught numerous watercolor workshops and adult classes through the Merrimack Adult Education Program. She is intrigued by the transformation of a blank piece of paper into a painted space, and she strives to take the observer to a similar sense of place and feeling. The love of the outdoors is evident in the Artist’s Statement:
“I love the qualities of watercolor – its fluid nature. To me, the interaction of an artist with the medium is like a dance – full of motion, feeling, and expression. I love to watch the painting develop and to discover new colors and compositions. As a teacher, I would like to enable students to find their connections with watercolor in new and expressive ways.”
