A three-day watercolor workshop by artist and instructor Lynn Ferris, AWS, NWS, will be offered at the Berkeley Art Works on September 17 – 19, 2014. The workshop will focus on techniques to capture light in watercolor, changing a painting from ordinary to extraordinary. Students will learn to design with light, recognize light sources and the shadows they create, add drama and luminosity. Lynn provides handouts, reference materials and lots of personal attention. The workshop is suitable for all levels but some experience with watercolor is preferred.
The Berkeley Arts Council presents the workshop at its facility at 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg. The workshop hours are from 9 am to 4 pm each day. The cost is $275 and space is limited. For details and online registration, visit www.berkeleyartswv.org/artworks/capturethelight/.
In addition, the 2014 West Virginia Watercolor Society Signature Exhibit will be open to the public and on display in the Berkeley Art Works gallery from September 4 to 28. Visitors are invited to meet the artists at a free reception on Saturday, September 6 from 5 – 7 pm. Gallery hours are Thursday 12-5, Friday 12-8, Saturday 12-5, and Sunday 12-3.
