Start off spring by learning a new skill with the May Second Saturday Workshop, offered by the Clarksville/Montgomery County Arts & Heritage Development Council and the Downtown Artists Co-Op.
On Saturday, May 10, from 9:00am to noon, at the Downtown Artists Co-Op (96 Franklin Street), artist Janet Felts will lead participants in a Wash-Off Paintings Workshop, experimenting with a resist technique using water-based media.
Workshop participants will first create a watercolor (liquid Acrylic or permanent inks) painting. When the paintings are completely dry, they will finish with a resist technique to give the paintings a unique look.
Janet Felts, an award-winning artist who has had her work juried into several shows throughout the southeast, started her career as a Graphic Artist and then taught high school Visual Art in both Tennessee and Georgia. She earned her Associate Degree in Advertising Art and her BFA in Art Education from Austin Peay State University, and she earned her Master’s Degree in Art Education from Georgia State University.
Watercolor paper and paper towels will be supplied. Participants will need to provide watercolor brushes, water-based paint (watercolor, liquid acrylic, or any permanent inks), a hairdryer, and watercolor palettes (a paper or plastic disposable plate will work as well).
The cost of the Wash-Off Paintings Workshop is $35. Registration is available online via the below button or by contacting the Clarksville Arts & Heritage Development Council at firstname.lastname@example.org or (931) 551-8870. (Online registrations carry a $2.00 convenience fee.) The registration deadline is May 8, and spaces are limited.
