About the Event
Always wanted to learn the basics of watercolor but were intimidated to give it a go? Watercolor is magical and a bit tricky, but with step-by-step instructions from local artist Lana Quann of "The Wandering Brush" everyone creates a unique one-of-a-kind painting!
All classes are geared toward beginners- and if you've dabbled a bit, you can learn a few techniques to make watercolor painting more enjoyable. We supply all materials and a mat to frame up your finished piece.
Students are allowed to play, make mistakes, learn to correct, and get hands-on help to bring their piece to life.
Please arrive 10 minutes early. BYOB or light beverages and snacks as there will be a 15-minute break during the class.
Your instructor is Lana Quann, a lifelong Southcoast resident and self taught overly obsessed with watercolor painting.
"Although I am self-taught in watercolor, I have a BA in Art History and several years of coursework in various mediums. After a long and varied career in the restaurant industry, changing circumstances brought me back to art in 2017. Always drawn to watercolor work, I decided to explore the medium deeply with various pigments, papers, and methods. In 2019 I created "The Wandering Brush," inspired by local hikes, wanderings, and trips between the Southcoast of Massachusetts to DownEast Maine. My simple, colorful, playful art bridges the gap between "craft" and fine art. Several locally-owned retailers sell original art at artisan/craft fairs and online. I have been teaching beginning classes/workshops with a loyal following for two years. Classes are geared to create a finished image in one session, where we learn the fundamentals of watercolor but play with traditional and non-traditional techniques."
