Fall Foliage & Flowers in Watercolors with local artist Casi Fordham

September 22, 2024 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join us at ArtPlay on the Fall Equinox 2024, Sunday, 9/22, to celebrate the turning of the season with creativity & community!

In this class you will learn techniques in watercolor painting, using fresh autumn blooms and fall foliage as your inspiration! Whether you’ll be visiting the sunflower fields at Biltmore or watching leaves begin to change up on the parkway, you can bring these inspirations into this class.

Local watercolor artist Casi Fordham will guide you in learning various wet into wet watercolor techniques, dry-brushing & using dark & light values as you build layers of color and shape, adding details afterward.

Allowing the pigment and water to interact as they expand across the page together is a great way to trust the creative process as it unfolds. Watercolors have a way of leading and surprising you if you allow them to!

You will begin with a step-by-step watercolor demo where you will warm-up with Casi’s guidance, and then transition into several rounds of layering and painting on your background papers. We’ll explore basic techniques, break down the elements of building values, guided by demos each step along the way. You will bring home your practice pieces as well as a larger piece you’ll work up to.

A light afternoon snack and a glass of wine will be served.

All materials provided. No experience needed.

Come play, learn & create!
