Join iHeart Hudson Valley and the Wallkill River Arts School at this wonderful artistic event!
Grab your sketchbook or a sheet of watercolor paper, and paint outside with award-winning watercolorist Dorrie Rifkin. In the morning we will be painting at the beautiful City Winery – Hudson Valley. In the afternoon, it’s lunching and sampling wine in City Winery’s elegant and rustic interior space. ( Wine-Tasting only tickets are also available HERE.)
All levels are welcome. If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at watercolors but didn’t know where to begin, this is the workshop for you: Dorrie is great with beginners. If you’re an advanced beginner or intermediate, she’ll help you strengthen your design skills and take your paintings to the next level.
This workshop will cover equally the steps of designing, drawing, and painting. Participants will learn to create strong compositions, execute a solid underlying sketch, and paint effectively.
Classes will be small, so there will be ample time to help students work toward individual goals. The lessons will be conducted to foster artistic camaraderie, and will feature gentle instruction, and upbeat, constructive, and above all, friendly, critiques.
