Art for Vets: Pen, Ink, and Watercolor with Sandee Nichols

Thursday, August 24

10:30 am to 3:30 pm

The pen, ink, and watercolor combination is a favorite among mixed media. It combines the contrast of opaque, solid pen or ink marks and watercolor paint’s flowing, light quality. Experiment with watercolor washes to use effectively as a background and various other pen and ink drawing techniques. Ideas and inspiration from the Currier’s collection will be available for class use. The results will be both contemporary and traditional. All materials provided.
