Exploring Watercolor Painting
January 10, 2015
11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Family Discovery Gallery
You may be familiar with a shallow pan of watercolor paints complete with a narrow space for a brush. Did you know you can also find watercolor paints in tubes? Try mixing some of these tube watercolors with help from Jessica Kelly-Paul. What colors will you make? Red and blue to make a lovely violet? Blue and yellow for a soft green? Then use these hues to practice common painting techniques using brushes, sponges and tissues.
Family Programs are offered on Saturdays in the Family Discovery Gallery on a drop-in basis from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The programs are geared for children ages 5-12. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No pre-registration is required. Programs are free with admission to the Paine (free for Paine Members and Big Brothers Big Sisters participants).
