Special Events Being Held in conjunction with the 2015 Juried Show!

 Watercolor Demonstration by Mick McAndrews of Downingtown, PA - Saturday October 10.

Mick will demonstrate the wonder and intrinsic beauty of watercolor by painting loose and juicy, and work with plenty of water and plenty of pigment to allow the medium to do what it does best.  During the demonstration he will paint a marine scene including all of the trimmings and trappings of a working dock with boats, rigging, nets, lobster pots, etc. He will also take time to discuss the importance of good drawing skills and the elements and principles of design. The demonstration will be informal so please come prepared to ask questions.  

This free demonstration is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society. 

Mick is a signature member of the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, the Philadelphia Water Color Society and the Baltimore Watercolor Society. Also he is an Artist Member of the Mid Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association. He is on the teaching staff of Historic Yellow Springs in Chester Springs, PA, where he teaches watercolor and leads an annual plein air workshop. 

Saturday, Oct. 10, 1 - 3 p.m.


Our mission is to encourage, promote, and enhance water media painting on paper through the education of the artist and the public.
