“Under the Sea” Workshop

The workshop will feature the Clownfish.  I will teach the techniques for painting an underwater scene that are different from above water scenes.  We will have a lot of fun because you can’t really do anything very wrong in this class…and I don’t give demerits!

Whispering Pines City Park Recreation Bldg, Inverness
9 am – 4 pm

Cost: $95 for members; $115 for non-members

I have always liked to draw, but my career was in music.  When I retired from teaching and moved to Florida, I took many watercolor classes in Bradenton and Sarasota.  I loved it! Anne Abgott (a wonderful watercolor teacher) convinced me to enter my first Florida Watercolor Society exhibition and my painting was accepted!

 My paintings were accepted the first 3 years that I entered, so I acquired signature status.  My specialty is doing commissioned work, which requires painting many different subjects and is never boring.  My style is colorful and realistic. 
Since I am still very much involved in music, I have little time to teach classes, but I still love to teach.  I am happy that CWS is giving me this opportunity to conduct the April workshop.
