Beginning Watercolor Painting is offered on Tuesdays from 1-4pm starting May 5. This is a class for those with little or no experience in painting with watercolors, but who want to learn starting with the most essential basics and developing skills leading to accomplishing good watercolor painting techniques.  This class takes all the mystery and fear out of the process and shows the student of any level of expertise how to be successful in this beautiful process.

Mixed Media with Water Based Paint is offered on Fridays from 1-4pm starting May 8. Art students of all levels will enjoy this class designed to expand one’s ability to express one’s self beyond the ordinary.  Starting with either water color or acrylic paint bases, participants will develop paintings using a variety of other media such as pastels, colored pencils, crayons, ink, markers, etc.  There will also be exploration into applying various collage materials to the art pieces.  This will be a good time for participants to unleash their inner free spirit and explore new opportunities for their art.

Unlocking the Mysteries of Shading and Shadows is a one day Saturday workshop on May 9 from 1-4pm. Properly shading objects to make them look 3 dimensional and creating shadows that enhance the painting can be difficult to achieve.  This workshop quickly presents the practical solutions to these processes to help the student achieve success immediately.  Theories apply to all mediums.

Classes are held at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg.
