PEEC News:

Learn botanical drawing and watercolor using botanical and natural subjects with Santa Fe Artist Lisa Coddington. Novices as well as those refining their skills will receive encouraging step-by-step instruction in drawing and watercolor.

With easy to understand demonstrations and master artist examples, Coddington will work to reinforce each artist’s confidence in creating dimensional autumn-themed subjects. The objective is to finish one small painting and/or develop a series of sketches that support the artist’s progress by the end of this workshop.

This two-day program is $48 for PEEC members and $60 for non-members. Participants meet 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 4 and 1-4 p.m.  Sunday, March 5. The fee includes both days, a resource list and supportive handouts. Supplies are not included (estimated cost range is $30-85 per participant). Bring a lunch as there will be a 30-minute lunch break.

A minimum of eight students is required for this class to go, so register by March 1, otherwise the classes will be cancelled if there is not enough interest. Space is limited to 20 students.
