Watercolor Paw Painting is Fun, But Slippery

All art begins in the heart. What your heart creates, your hands can shape. It is simply a matter of technique, and with sufficient practice and training, those skills may be developed. You can paint; yes, YOU. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
But how, you may ask. (Go ahead. I can wait. . . . Okay, that's too long.) Well, let me tell you how. Reserve a place in artist Grace Cole's watercolor magic classes, which are held at our library. The next classes will be Tuesdays, March 22 & 29, 2011, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m., in the Library Community Room. You must register for the class, either by calling (317) 831-7323 (ask for Meghan) or by visiting our online calendar and clicking on the event to which you wish to register. The cost is $3.00 at the door. Attendees are asked to wear a work shirt and to bring a washrag and a cup for water. Other supplies will be furnished.
The library has a program trailer describing the wonders of watercolor art. As you can see from the video, the watercolor paintings appear as if by magic! That is truly amazing and, to be honest, a little scary.
If you have ever wanted to learn to paint but haven't touched watercolors since kindergarten, now's your chance to learn from a pro. You'll have lots of fun and will create some fine artwork. You can do it. I'm game to give it the ol' college try. (Click here if that phrase seems arcane.) I hope to see you there.
