Spur Your Inner Artist with Drawing & Watercolor

Experience a creative vacation in Medora this summer!

 

Join Barbara Benda Nagle, professional artist and instructor as she teaches “Spur Your Inner Artist with Drawing and Watercolor” workshop June 4 – 7.  A native of Wahpeton, ND, Barbara excels in simplifying art concepts so all levels of learners may succeed.

 

In this 4-day workshop, you will learn:

  • How to execute a variety of drawing and watercolor techniques
  • How to make sense of the color wheel and use it to your advantage
  • How to use “value” (lights and darks) to make paintings dramatic
  • How to design your painting rather than copy photographs
  • How to create strong, dynamic compositions

 

This workshop takes place in the state-of-the-art Bill and Jane Marcil Life Skills Center in Medora.  Class size is limited – the first 15 registrants will secure a spot.  Payment options vary from workshop only to the popular Stay and Paint package, which includes lodging at the historic Rough Rider Hotel.
