SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Gardnerville artist Teri Sweeney will be continuing her Beginning Watercolor Class at the Tahoe Art League Workshop Classroom into the month of April. “A Minden Street Scene” is the subject of the upcoming session.

Sweeney’s beginning classes are structured around projects which contain different techniques in watercolor. Each student is provided with a reference photo and drawing to transfer to watercolor paper, eliminating concerns about drawing in order to concentrate on the painting experience. The techniques used to create each painting are demonstrated by Sweeney and students are able to practice each step with supervision. Once students have mastered many of the watercolor skills, they are moved to an intermediate class where they learn how to draw and formulate their own compositions.

Sweeney is a nationally recognized Western Artist who has participated in numerous juried shows including the Western Masters Art Show and Sale in Great Falls, Montana and the San Dimas National Western Art Exhibition and Sale in San Dimas, California. Her work can be viewed at http://www.tsart.org.

The Tahoe Beginning Watercolor Class is held Tuesday afternoons from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at the Tahoe Art League workshop Classroom at Ski Run Boulevard and Highway 50. The cost for a 4 week session is $100. Please contact Teri at 775-790-9261 for more information and to register.
