“Stunning Skies in Watercolor” - 2 Day Workshop w/ Ron Stocke


This class is full. Please call the gallery to be put on the waiting list.

DATE/TIME: Sat & Sun  March 14-15   10:30am-4:30pm

COST: $225

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Ron says, “Prepare to paint Big! Loose! And Bold!” Isn’t that intriguing?!

Cityscapes and landscapes will be an element of your paintings in this 2-day watercolor workshop, but the true subject, the focus of your learning, will be the sky.  

Recently, Ron Stocke won a prestigious AWS award in NYC – the Edgar Whitney Memorial Award, 2014.  In this workshop, you’ll learn from the nationally-acclaimed master how to create these gorgeous dramatic skies. You’ll explore what makes watercolor unique, using the traditional wet-on-wet method – but pushed to the limits, with Ron as your guide.
