Art in Motion kicks off with ‘Watercolor and More’

Twisted Fish Gallery’s Art in Motion series is underway, beginning with hugely popular “Watercolor and More” classes taught by artist Mary Guntzviller.

Guntzviller, who has been teaching for more than two decades, brings humor and fun to the class while still sharing tons of knowledge about drawing, shading, colors, perspective and life in general.

Mary Guntzviller shows her students how to blend watercolors to achieve shading.

“Apparently many of us are beginners,” said Dorothy McCormick, of Acme, “and Mary’s detailed instructions are very helpful. She does demonstrations, she shows us how to do it.”

Getting perspective

Dorothy McCormick uses a pencil to get perspective on a still life she is painting.

The classes are held Thursdays, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., in The Cottage Gallery at Twisted Fish, a light, comfortable space with room to spread out.

There are separate rooms, all featuring gallery art, in The Cottage, with plenty of space for students to work.

April’s classes, “Watercolor Adventures,” will be taught by Charles Murphy, an internationally acclaimed painter and illustrator. Sign up soon, because these classes, beginning April 2, are expected to fill up. Call 264-0123 to register and get a supply list.
