Workshops at Sewell Mills
These one-day workshops are part of an ongoing series, "Bring-a-Dish Painting." We start the day with a pot-luck sharing of food, then paint the subject for the rest of the day. All of these workshops are designed with the novice watercolorist in mind, although experienced painters will also get a lot from the day. These workshops often fill fast, so sign up early to reserve a chair. Contact Sewell Mills Studio, (410) 200-1743 or contact using email for more information or to register for each of these workshops. 50.00 for each one-day workshop. Register early to assure a chair. Please pay for each workshop separately.
Wildflower Botanical Study in Watercolor

Texture, color and composition will be the focus for this painting. Something for any watercolorist, new or experienced to learn. Paper provided.
(perfect for a home-grown Christmas Card)
September 26th, 11:00 am until 4:30 pm. Get yourself ready for the Christmas season by preparing your own painting of a cardinal, ready to be turned into a personal greeting card that you can print yourself. Nothing will make you more proud than giving friends a copy of your own painting as a Christmas card. (We won't be printing the cards in this workshop, just painting the watercolor) An easy and fun workshop that will get you in the mood for the holidays. Paper provided.
