Watercolors

with Ed Kadunc

Monday, April 3, 5:30 pm

Location:
Court Street Arts at Alumni Hall
Haverhill, NH

Tickets: $65 Court Street Arts members, $68 non-members

This introductory class, taught by Ed Kadunc, will focus on a variety of established technical and creative aspects of watercolor painting. Using spring flowers as our subject we will apply simple watercolor techniques and learn a variety of essential watercolor elements in depicting flowers and flower arrangements. The course will introduce a number of watercolor steps including proper application, understanding of color, color mixing, brushwork, etc., in order to complete a composition. Spring flowers are a wonderful subject and the watercolor medium is well suited for color variations in flower painting. Through demonstration and step by step application we will simplify the approach to watercolor painting and develop our colorful compositions.

We will have computers available here.

SECRET BELGIAN BOOKBINDING (For high school students and adults)

Tuesdays, April 25, May 2 and May 9, 6-8 pm

Location: Catamount Outback Artspace

Instructor: Sharon Kenney Biddle

Participants will be creating a hard cover blank book. The two-part binding process involves sewing together the cover boards in a puzzle-like weave, and binding the inside pages by attaching them to the cover. This book uses the dramatic-looking sewing as the centerpiece of its design. Because the pages lie flat, the book is ideal as a travel journal, a garden journal or a sketchbook. All materials and supplies will be provided as well as written directions for the Secret Belgian Binding for each participant to take home.

Class fee: $60. 10% discount for Catamount Arts Members and high school students.
Materials fee of $8 due to the instructor at first class. Limit of 8 participants. Registration deadline is April 21.

High school students should complete the enrollment form after purchasing.

Sharon Biddle has been teaching bookbinding for twenty years. She believes that old-fashioned paper-filled books, especially ones that we make ourselves, are not obsolete or irrelevant. Designing a book and building its contents are worthy, satisfying experiences. A well-made book that is entirely one’s own from cover to cover is a valuable example of imagination and careful craftsmanship.
