The Berkeley Arts Council offers an afternoon workshop, “Capturing the Beauty of Trees,” on Saturday, April 18. Under the guidance of instructor Judith Becker participants will learn and practice the essentials, using whatever type of art materials they are comfortable with.
“Painting beautiful trees, in any media, requires an understanding of more than the shapes and particular characteristics of different trees,” Becker said. “An artist also needs to capture the colors, shades, textures and open spaces.”
The “Capturing the Beauty of Trees” workshop will be held on Saturday, April 18, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m., at Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in downtown Martinsburg. Tuition is $45; pre-registration is required. Space is still available but limited. For more information and to pre-register, visit http://www.berkeleyartswv.org/artworks/instruction/.
