Winter Water-Based Workshop Center Hosts Water Media Class Water is important to the lives of all Minnesotans. In the Land of 10,000 Lakes we appreciate a good canoe trip, water-ski outing, or dip in the local swimming hole! But what of our water play in the frozen winter months? The Cultural Center in New York Mills has the answer to your winter H2O-cravings: a water media class! Learn lots of creative and interesting ways to use water in your artistic endeavors. Class launches at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 17, docking at 2:00 p.m. This gives participants plenty of time to dip their toes in before taking the plunge with water media. Says Center Education and Outreach Coordinator, Cheryl Bannes (also class instructor), “those in the heart of the lakes will find heart in this colorful use of water.” In the workshop, students use watercolor pencils, water-soluble oil pastels, watercolor crayons, and water-soluble graphite pencils and markers to draw and paint a simple landscape on watercolor paper.

This class is simple enough for beginners without watering-down the subject matter too much. Anyone above […]
