Edibles on Paper: Indian Corn
with Kathy Schermer-Gramm, Professional Artist
Saturday and Sunday, Nov 11 and 12 from 1:15 – 4:45 PM
Maize or Indian corn has been domesticated throughout the Western hemisphere and revered by Native Americans for thousands of years. The multi-colored seed kernels are incredibly beautiful in their various forms. A fantastic Fall subject to paint in transparent watercolor. Join us for a weekend workshop, where you will sketch and then paint a realistic ear of corn using wet washes, dry brush and glazing. Watercolor experience helpful.
Fee: $81 ($73 members). Supply Fee Included. Bring your own paint or loan a watercolor palette for $2.00 from instructor.
