UNM-LA Community Education Offers Adult Watercolor Class

By Vint Miller

The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos (UNM-LA) Community Education department will offer the class, “Watercolors That WOW!” The class runs 6-8:30 p.m., Monday evenings, Nov. 11 through Dec. 16, in room 614 on the UNM-LA campus.

Watercolor artists of all levels are welcome in this class, where they will focus on capturing the motivations for their art and learn a variety of techniques to bring their paintings to life. The tools and concepts that will be taught include the use of the color wheel and creating balance with composition and light.

Local artist, Dianne Garrett-Smith, teaches “Watercolors That WOW!” According to the artist’s statement, Garrett-Smith was born and raised in the Philadelphia, Pa., area and began making art at about the time she began to walk. She has shown in numerous large juried shows and her work has been displayed in the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. Garrett-Smith currently teaches art at UNM-LA and juries exhibitions at the Fuller Lodge Art Center in Los Alamos.

UNM-LA Community Education Director Eva Artschwager says, “We are fortunate to have such a dedicated and talented faculty member teaching this class at UNM-LA. This type of quality instruction is what makes this campus so special.”

The adult class is for students 18 and older and costs $115, excluding supplies.
