Arts Council Presents Workshop with Lynn Ferris
In conjunction with the exhibit, the Berkeley Arts Council will also present a three-day watercolor workshop by artist and instructor Lynn Ferris, AWS, NWS, at the Berkeley Art Works on September 15-17, 2014, from 9am to 4:30pm each day. The workshop will focus capturing light in painting. Good use of light and shadow can change a painting from ordinary to extraordinary. Using a limited palette of mainly transparent paint, 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 cost is $275 and space is limited.
