Summer Sunsets in the Blue Ridge Mountains: A Watercolor Class, with local artist Casi Fordham

August 25, 2024 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join us at ArtPlay for a Sunday evening of watercolor painting, community & creativity. Learn the art of painting a sunset mountain-scape using watercolors. Bring a sunset image from our beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains or other landscape that inspires you!

In this class, you’ll experience the wonders of layering transparent colors to create layered images of a sunset in our Blue Ridge mountains or other favorite landscape.

Casi is a wonderful teaching artist who will guide you into the world of watercolors as you learn the joy of layering and building up a colorful landscape. She will share tips, tools, techniques, & demonstrations as you learn the art of painting with watercolors. You will begin with a step-by-step watercolor demo where you will warm-up by practicing some foundational skills, and then transition into landscape painting.

Throughout the class, you will be guided in exploring basic techniques, breaking down the elements of a landscape and building values.

Please bring a reference photo as a visual muse (magazine page, or photo on your phone from a hike, a favorite sunset mountain-scape; or sunset at another landscape that captures your heart and eye, to use as inspiration).

A light snack and glass of wine will be served.

All materials included. No experience needed.
