Award-winning artist Mary Palidofska guides students through the nuances of watercolor and acrylic painting in an inspirational fine-art-gallery setting. During each two-hour beginner art class, nascent painters don smocks and learn the basic watercolor skills necessary to render the leafy canopy of a stirring landscape or the glistening top of a favorite green bean casserole. Both beginners and students with some prior painting experience can delve into watercolor and acrylic techniques during four watercolor/watermedia classes, which may venture outdoors if the weather is nice or if the sparrows uphold their end of the nonaggression pact. After registration, students will receive a list of supplies they should purchase for class, including paints and brushes. Check the schedule for upcoming dates and times.
Bear White Studios is also home to a music studio, writers' studio, and gallery that showcases fine art and limited-edition pieces. Crafters peddle custom jewelry and handcrafted aromatherapy products and perfumes, so hardworking students can mask the scent of sweat and tears with a hint of patchouli.
