Instructor Peg Panasiti will be teaching this Fall themed Watercolors for Beginners Workshop. Students will be taken step by step through creating a piece similar to the beautiful pumpkin painting that is pictured. Students will be asked to purchase their supplies before the class. If you come with a friend or family member, you could share your supplies to help on the cost. The class takes place on Saturday, October 2 at 10am to 2pm at 601 Georgian Place, Somerset. The fee for the workshop is $45 nonmembers/$36 members plus a $2 materials fee to Peg. (She will provide watercolor paper). See below for the additional supplies you will need to bring.
