Irondequoit Art Club: Watercolors In-Person
REGISTRATION OPENS MARCH 8, 2023
Join us for instruction and demonstration on a variety of Watercolor techniques. There will be a still life to work from, or you may bring your own photo of a still life or landscape to work from. A variety of watercolor paints and different kinds of paper will be provided. Attendees will also experiment with a product called “watercolor ground” which makes any surface ready for watercolor application.
Paints, paper and a supply of brushes, and plates for use as a palette will be provided, though attendees are encouraged to bring an apron, a couple old rags, and paint brushes and paints if you have them, a container for water, and a spray bottle.
Library programs are open and beneficial to all. We invite people with physical and/or cognitive disabilities to attend any of our activities and will strive to support individual needs. If you need accommodations to participate, please contact one of our Inclusion Coordinators, Matt Krueger and/or Amy Holland, one week prior to the program.
About the Instructor: Sally Steinwachs pursued painting as a hobby starting in her early 20's under the tutelage of a local painter, Jean Premo. Toward the end of her career in City Planning and non-profit community work, Sally bought a house overlooking Lake Ontario, returned to painting, studied with a few more local artists and joined the Irondequoit Art Club. A creative influence for her has been the book "The Artists' Way," by Julia Cameron. Sally is an exhibiting and award winning member of the Irondequoit Art Club. She also participates in several downtown art groups, exhibits her work currently with the Artists Cave, and has exhibited at the Irondequoit Farmers Market in the past. She uses Facebook and other social media sites to show her own work and promote the work of other artists.
