The Berkeley Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) non‐profit organization incorporated in West Virginia working to ensure that Berkeley County has a vibrant, vital arts environment by promoting awareness, understanding and appreciation of the literary, visual and performing arts in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. The Berkeley Arts Council is on the Web at www.berkeleyartswv.org.
The Berkeley Arts Council has added a new Beginning Waterolor Pencil class to it’s November schedule of classes. The class will be held Wednesdays November 4, 11, 18, and December 2 from 1-4pm at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg.
The four week class is appropriate for students who have no watercolor painting experience as well as those who currently paint with watercolors, but who want to expand their techniques. Students will learn how to lay down colors to create multitudes of variations of hues, of achieving many different textures, and of the ease of using the pencils when traveling, journaling, making their own greeting or note cards, or when sketching as well as painting entire compositions.
Previously announced classes are second level classes in drawing, oil painting and color pencils. Details and online registration are available at http://artworks.berkeleyartswv.org/instruction/ or call 304-620-7277 for more information.
