Classes with Judy Seyfert and Jaclyn Lawson

Getting tired of winter?  The Missouri Botanical Garden is offering several art classes to help you chase away the winter doldrums. Here are some of the classes two of our members, Judy Seyfert and Jaclyn Lawson, will be teaching there this March.

  Judy will be teaching  Watercolor Wisdom (clickable link) on Friday mornings, beginning March 4th.  This class is designed to help you approach your own paintings with confidence.  Using a limited  palette, Judy will demonstrate simple techniques for making impressive paintings.  Through group and individual instruction, students will learn how to design and create their own compositions.  This class is appropriate for both beginning and intermediate students.
When: 8 Fridays:  March 4, 11, 18, 25; April 1, 8, 22, 29.  No class April 15.
Time: 9:30 a.m. till noon

  Watercolor: Pure and Simple is being offered Monday evenings starting March 7.
   Everywhere we look there is an inspiration for a painting.  Getting from the inspiration to the finished painting is a wonderful journey.  With this goal in mind, Judy will demonstrate how to use design and color to paint impressive watercolors.  Group and individual instruction will be given to encourage self-expression and experimentation.  Beginning or experienced watercolorists will find this a fun and exciting journey into creativity.

Indoor plants, photographs, and other still lifes will be your subject while we wait for the thaw of spring.
