06:00 pm to 08:00 pmVirtual via Zoom

Tuesdays, January 12, 2021, 6 pm, runs for 6 weeks
Explore the many personalities of 140 lb watercolor paper. It is durable enough to absorb an onslaught of wet work and still make lovely greeting cards. It is thick enough to build three dimensional sculptures (which then love to be painted!) and thin enough to bend, fold and cut easily. It paints like a dream - liquid watercolors are stunning!
