On three consecutive Fridays, beginning on October 17, the Farnsworth Art Museum will present a watercolor workshop, taught by Lesia Sochor. The workshop, entitled An Introduction to Watercolor, will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the Gamble Education Center, on the corner of Grace and Union Streets in Rockland.
In this 3-week introductory class, students will explore watercolor’s transparent qualities. Participants will learn about washes, gradations, tonal values, manipulating and controlling the medium while being open to its endless surprises.
Artist Lesia Sochor is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Art and is an enthusiastic teacher who believes anyone has the ability to create. She has lived, painted and exhibited in Maine for 34 years.
