Talk on watercolors March 8
Watercolor Techniques and Materials
On Monday, March 8, 2010, the El Cerrito Art Association will host a talk and demonstration on Watercolor Techniques and Materials, presented by Winsor & Newton representative, Christine Hanlon. The program will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Garden Room of the El Cerrito Community Center, 7007 Moeser Lane, El Cerrito.
Winsor & Newton was founded in 1832 by Henry Newton and William Winsor, who were involved with the leading artists of their time - J.M.W Turner, for example. The company pledges to manufacture “the world’s finest artist’ materials,” and takes its relationship with artists very seriously, taking an active interest in what they say.
This lively and entertaining presentation will look at the history, techniques, and materials that spell success when working in this most legendary of mediums, explain differences among colors, papers, brushes and more, and show how to choose which one is best for what you want to accomplish.
All attendees will receive free watercolor samples.
