Join Cliff Tresner, an accomplished artist and arts educator with 27 years of experience in teaching 2D and 3D art disciplines, for an engaging watercolor workshop at the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens. Since 2017, Mr. Tresner has dedicated part of his practice to mastering watercolor techniques.

This three-day workshop is designed for beginning and intermediate artists who wish to explore or refine their watercolor skills. Watercolor is a versatile medium known for its stress-relieving benefits, ease of use, and quick setup and cleanup compared to other painting methods. During the first two sessions, participants will learn fundamental techniques and processes of watercolor painting. The final sessions will culminate in creating a finished watercolor study based on an original photograph.

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to display their finished work in the Biedenharn Museum for one week. Don't miss this chance to enhance your watercolor abilities under the guidance of an experienced and passionate educator.
