Sarah Graham One-Day Watercolor Workshop April 22

Watercolor Workshop Pics

This workshop is designed for all levels of instruction. Beginners with no drawing or painting experience will not be lost, and advanced artists will not be bored. It will take you through a broad range of subject matter, plus furnish you with a valuable collection of tips and tricks that Sarah has accumulated based on her classical training as an artist, her personal journey as a portrait painter, and her experience teaching art and painting on a number of different levels over the last 15 years.

Unlike most workshops, this one is a one day affair. Drive out. Have a blast. Drive home. No hassle. You will learn from a number of exercises that will help sharpen your technique and your eye, work from photographs, glean from the work of artists who have come before you and have an opportunity to watch Sarah paint a portrait start to finish throughout the day.

We hope you will join us for a chance to get away from it all, have some fun, and learn some valuable new skills!

Lunch break is at noon and Sarah resumes promptly at 1:00 pm.

April 22, 2017 This one day workshop is only $115.  Book yout reservation at http://www.paintboxonthesquare.com/instruction/sarah-graham-one-day-watercolor-workshop or contact Paintbox on the Square.

A soup and salad lunch will be provided for $10 extra at the home of Russ & Terri Reed, only a short walk from the studio in the Lancaster Historic District.  Or, feel free to bring a sack lunch.

She has been juried into more than 100 exhibitions, receiving national and international recognition for the vision, innovative techniques, and fearless expression that give rise to her unique designs. Painting with openness to her subject matter, she is guided by intense observation and deep personal reflection. The result is rich symbolic layers of literal and figurative design.

Painting from an early age, Kathleen was influenced by teachers and artists in the fertile environment of Southern California’s prominent artists, museums and galleries as well as early international travels. She studied undergraduate fine arts at San Diego State University, finished her Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Washington in Seattle and earned her Master of Arts degree from Northern Michigan University. Continued study with American master watercolor artists over the next decade enriched her depth, understanding, skill, and personal style of painting.


Kathleen Conover’s current involvement in the growing international watercolor scene includes invitations to exhibit, judge, and demonstrate in China, Turkey, France, Belgium, Thailand and Greece. She has been honored as one of the 40 international master watercolorists invited to exhibit at the first watercolor-exclusive museum in Qingdao, China, the “Birthplace of Watercolor”. Global travel continues to influence her award winning paintings and inspires her work toward her lifetime pursuit, “… to be a better painter”.

December Workshops at Oil & Cotton





with James Thurman
Saturday, Dec 3, 3-6pm
Basic metalworking is easier than you think (and possibly a lot more fun!).  In this workshop, students will create a unique metal ornament embellished with their own textures.  Hammering, stamping, pressing, and punching, oh my.  Just a few of the techniques introduced that students can use to customize their own individual design.  By the end of the workshop, students will have at least one finished metal ornament to decorate with and the knowledge (and hopefully enthusiasm) to make more.


w/ Analise Minjarez
Sunday, December 4, 3-6pm
Students will learn beginning knot techniques to create a sturdy and stellar tapestry plant hanger.
