The Erie Canal Discovery Center/Penney Gallery and Niagara Art Trail are pleased to host two new art class series this winter at the Gallery, 24 Church St., Lockport.
The first is a five-week series entitled “Intermediate Watercolor Painting,” and it is taught by local artist Terry Mangan.
This series is open to those 12 years of age and older. It is suggested that students will have either taken Terry’s beginner level class or have other prior experience with watercolors. Mangan’s style of teaching allows the student to develop skills while seeing quick results for their effort. Each student will produce a finished watercolor to take home.
Classes will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on five consecutive Mondays beginning Feb. 18 and running through March 18. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
The second winter series is entitled “Drawing for Beginners: Level 2,” and is taught by artist George Miller.
This five-week class will expand on basic techniques for those who have attended Miller’s Level 1 classes or have some basic drawing experience. The artist’s unique teaching method offers comprehensive tools for the beginner and more advanced students, alike.
Students 12 and over are welcome to take part on five consecutive Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. beginning Feb. 19 and running through March 19. Doors open at 6 p.m.
The cost of each five-week series is $80 per student. A list of supplies will be given at time of registration and supplies will also be available at the class at very reasonable prices.
Space is limited, so please reserve your spot today by calling Jay Krull of the Niagara Art Trail at 609-0433. Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card.
