Instructor Peg Panasiti will be teaching this Holiday Watercolors for Beginners Workshop. Students will be taken step by step through creating a piece similar to the beautiful holiday 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, November 21 at 10am to 2pm at 601 Georgian Place, Somerset. The fee for the workshop is $45 nonmembers/$36 members payable to Laurel Arts plus a $2 materials fee payable to Peg. (She will be providing the watercolor paper.) See below for the suggested additional supplies you will need to bring. The class is suitable for ages 10 and up.
Meet Peg Panasiti:
“Painting with watercolor has been my passion for the past forty years. Getting involved in several art organizations keeps me current on the latest art trends.” Peg is a member of Wednesday Night Painters, Pittsburgh Watercolor Society, Greensburg Art Club, Latrobe Art Center, Altoona Art In Common and Bellefonte Art Museum. She has been accepted into several national art exhibits and is a Signature Member of Pennsylvania’s Watercolor Society.
