Violets Aren’t Always Blue
Saturday, March 10, 1–3pm
Beginners class to learn about supplies and useful techniques, such as wet in wet, dry brush and laying the wash. Violets will be the first in a series of spring flowers. Watercolor art supplies are listed at www.MindyNewman.org, under art supplies.

Daffodils
Saturday, March 17, 2018, 1–3pm
The flower for both Easter and Passover, with its five-pointed Star of David. This lovely first-of-spring flower, in its sweet buttery shades of yellow, will be a great learning tool for color theory. You may want to bring in your own photographs!

Daisy, Daisy
Saturday, March 24, 1–3pm
More interesting ways to create in watercolor using the white of the paper rather than the white paint. The daisies are a fresh and simple way to express spring. You will be asked to bring your own supplies this week.
Location: Conservatory Meeting Room B
