Print Info

Art Workshop is designed for SOAR aspiring artists to get together informally and improve their painting skills in water media. The group collectively critiques their art work, and we all learn from each other. Beginners are welcome to join this class. Experienced members are willing to mentor beginners.

Nellie Bright loves watercolor. She also loves the class structure and the exchange of ideas among group members to keep her on-track and inspired. Sally Kirby is a long time weaver and an accomplished watercolorist. Both Nellie and Sally have been participants in Leon LeBeau’s art workshop classes for many years. Instruction also was given by SUNY Potsdam art student - Kyle Derry.
