“Capture the Light”
with Lynn Ferris

Berkeley Arts Council, Martinsburg, WV is pleased to offer an exciting and unique watercolor workshop by Lynn Ferris, AWS, NWS, TWSA, nationally and internationally known artist and instructor.

Bring your work to the next level. Light and shadow shouldn’t be after thoughts in our paintings. In fact, good use of light and shadow is one of the best ways to take a painting from ordinary to extraordinary.

In her signature workshop “Capturing the Light,” Lynn will show students how to use light and shadow to design stronger compositions and bring drama to a variety of subject matter. Students will gain new skills and confidence working with shadows, light sources, creating glow, and more. Lynn provides handouts, reference materials, and lots of personal attention.
