Fall Watercolor Classes

Local artist Mary Horrigan will offer adult watercolor classes at the Marlborough Arts Center on Tuesday
and Thursday mornings starting September 19th and running through October 26th, 2023. Classes will run
from 10 a.m. until noon.

Tuesdays’ lessons are designed for “Basic Beginners”. This class starts with the very basics: brush
handling, laying a wash, making simple shapes, controlling values, mixing colors. Subject matter will
include still life objects and landscape elements. Dates for this class are September 19th, 26th, October 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th. Thursdays’ lessons are designed for students with some basic experience in watercolor. This class assumes knowledge of the basics – laying a wash, controlling values, brush handling, mixing colors. We will concentrate on composition, color theory, negative painting, working from photos and still life setups. Dates for this class are September 21st, 28th, October 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th.

Material lists will be sent once the class is confirmed with enough students registered. Cost for the class is $120.00. Registration forms can be downloaded here, and a check mailed to The Marlborough Arts Center, 231 North Main Street, Marlborough, CT 06447.
