Art Workshop A is designed both for aspiring artists who wish to learn basic watercolor techniques and for those who wish to advance their painting skills in water media, e.g. watercolor, gouache, or acrylic. A more structured approach will be taken with the former; a more independent interaction will apply to the latter. Instruction will be through both group and individual presentations and also through critiques.

Leon LeBeau has been teaching drawing and watercolor to SOAR participants since the beginning of the SOAR program; he has also instructed art classes at the Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg and at the For Art’s Sake Gallery in Malone. Leon has participated in numerous exhibits in the North Country and the Adirondacks. In spring 2004, Leon received the very first “Super SOARer” award. The “Outstanding Service to SOAR” award was created in honor of his years of dedication to our organization.
