for Beginners & Intermediate Students
Beginning June 11 at the Joyful Jewel
Beth Bale, watercolor artist, will be teaching a series of 6 watercolor painting classes at The Joyful Jewel in Pittsboro during the months of June, July and August. Classes are appropriate for beginner and early-intermediate watercolor painters. The classes are twice a month for 2 hours on Sunday afternoon, 2 until 4 pm. Dates are June 11 & 25, July 9 & 30, and August 13 & 27.
Beth is a member of Chatham Artists Guild, Watercolor Society of NC and Sanford Brush and Palette Club. She has won awards from WSNC and Sanford Brush and Palette Club for her watercolor paintings of nature and animals in a colorful and loose style, with focus on light and shadow. Beth will teach students to paint with freedom and fun, with a no-pressure style that helps students find their own styles and preferences. See her work at The Joyful Jewel, on her website atwww.bethbale.com, on Facebook at Beth Bale Fine Art or on Instagram at Beth Bale Fine Art. Contact her at email@example.com with any questions.
Students need to sign up for the entire series of 6 classes, at a cost of $120, to be paid at The Joyful Jewel. If students need to have supplies provided, this can be arranged for a fee of $5 per class. A materials list will be provided for those wanting to purchase their own supplies. Each class will focus on how to paint a different subject, but students may choose to veer off this subject to work on their preferred subject if they desire, with Beth providing suggestions and showing demonstrations on each subject. Classes are small with lots of time for one-to-one mentoring as students need help or feel stuck on an area of their painting.
A recent student commented, “You are lots of fun, I love your teaching style and wow, what an artist!”
