Intro & More to Watercolor

2015 Intro and More to Watercolor

This is a two-day introduction to watercolor. Learn or reinforce your basic skills. This is a fun, no pressure class. Mistakes are required. Wear old clothes. Give yourself permission to try, and painting can provide relief from the stress of everyday life. Techniques such as wet on wet, dry brush, splatter and many more will be demonstrated. Learn about mixing water with pigment to make colors muted or bolder. The ratio of water to paint is the key to successful watercolor results. An experienced instructor, Mary will give individual instruction and encouragement to all. Students will work at their own level with frequent demonstrations. Bring humor.              

Mary Guntzviller has been teaching since 1993. She has a BFA from Wayne State University and has been a professional artist since 1988.  In December 2014, the children’s book, McGillicutty, A Very Special Bear, that Mary illustrated, was released. At the 2012 Glen Arbor Paint-Out, Mary won 1st place and in 2013, 2nd place at the Traverse City Botanical Gardens Paint-Out. Her paintings have been accepted many times at the Michigan Watercolor Society.  Her artworks, including watercolors, oils, acrylic, and three-dimensional pieces, are displayed in private and public collections throughout the United States. www.guntzviller.com.
