Restoration through Art: Watercolor class

August 11, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

With the lush tree lines and fields that surround Melrose, there is no shortage of beautiful landscapes. Students will be taught three basic watercolor techniques: wet on dry, wet on wet one color, and wet on wet two color. These will then be applied to a landscape painting. The only drawing involved will be a simple horizon line across the paper! The rest is painting magic. Students will have a choice of sunny or stormy skies and will be instructed how to achieve each.

The class is from 5PM to 7PM, and will take place at Lemee House, 310 Jefferson St., Natchitoches, LA 71457. APHN will provide all supplies for the class. The class is suitable for ages 12 and up. (Minors must have an adult present.) The front doors of Lemee will open for students at 4:45PM.

Cheryl Gianforte is the guest artist who will be teaching the class. She is a Native of New Orleans, Graduate of Northwestern with a Master’s Plus 30 in Art Education, Art teacher at Natchitoches Central High School for 33 years, Twice named Natchitoches Parish Teacher of the Year, Chairman and Founder of Fleur de Lis Craft Market, Active artist and crafter.
