Saturday Watercolor Workshops on the Sculpture Trail
August 6, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
with Susan Marsh, local watercolor painter
Saturday Workshops are free, and no advance registration is required!
The workshop will begin in the Museum classroom, and will include a tour of the current exhibit Scenes of Transcendent Beauty: Thomas Moran’s Yellowstone to gain inspiration. The tour will be followed by a short watercolor demonstration by a professional artist in the Museum classroom. For the final hour of the program, participants will move outside onto the Sculpture Trail to receive instruction and to paint the flowering native plants that are currently blooming and make up the Greater Yellowstone Botanical Tour.
Materials: We will provide basic materials, but participants are welcome to bring any watercolor art supplies they already have.
About the Artist:
“I have created art from an early age. Pen-and-ink drawing was my first love, and later I expanded into woodcut, ink wash and sumi-e. I began to expand my palette to include color, and for most of the following decade I focused on watercolor, loving that transparency. I have come to appreciate the flexibility, durability and intensity of oils as well. I am also a photographer, and have lately been producing overlays and collages that include altered photos, drawings, and watercolors.
My work has been shown in venues including the Center for the Arts, Teton County Library, and others. I have participated in juried shows, including the Co-existence with Wildlife exhibition at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. This year my work will be included in JH Public Art’s Wild Walls project and I participated in NMWA’s Plein Air Fest.”
