The series will run for four weeks, October 5 – October 26. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning to paint in watercolor. Barbara teaches watercolor classes locally and around the world. She truly enjoys teaching and says, “nothing that I have ever painted compares to seeing an art student light up with new eyes and become that creative being that we all are.” The lesson series costs $100.00. The supply list is available on the art center’s website.
Also starting in October, local award-winning mosaic artist, Nancy Mayhew will be expanding her offerings at the Beloit Art Center. In addition to her weekly Thursday Mosaic Mania Class, she will be offering a Mosaic Trees Class. Students will learn how to create their own mosaic standing or wall tree using stained glass, stone, wood, beads, smalti glass, jewelry, and various metal trinkets. The trees can be decorative and displayed year-round or participants can make a Christmas tree. Several mosaic techniques will be taught at this class. The Mosaic Trees Class will meet on Wednesday, October 13, 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Wednesday, October 20, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The cost is $65 for the tree class plus $20 for materials which includes wooden trees, stained glass, beads, ceramic tiles, smalti glass, china, metal trinkets, and grout.
