Event Description

Learn how to paint a nightscape with watercolors and create your own artwork inspired by nocturnal scenes in the exhibition Mythmakers: The Art of Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington. Through Zoom, we’ll start the workshop with a museum staff member highlighting select paintings in the show. Then, we’ll learn technical, intermediate-level approaches to using watercolors with 2021 Carter Community Artist Brenda Ciardiello. She will teach us how to mix colors for the perfect moonlit night sky and how best to feature light in a dark landscape. The workshop is open to all levels but will include only a brief review of basic skills.

Supply fee includes a specialty watercolor palette and supplies chosen specifically for painting with dark colors. Upon registering, you will receive information about how to pick-up your watercolor kit from the museum.

Advance tickets for Carter Society members on sale December 7. Public tickets go on sale on December 14.
