About the teacher:
Gary has worked in all media over the past forty years, but watercolor has proven the most spontaneous and portable of all. Thirty- three years ago, at the urging of his mother who was a medical artist at Walter Reed Hospital, he began experimenting with this elusive medium.
Serving as Artist in Residence, Gary has participated in the Arts in Education Program of the Maryland state arts council. He is a member of the American Impressionist Society, the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society and was the former president of the Washington Society of Landscape Painters.

Adult 2 day workshop
Mixed Media collage
Saturday and Sunday                              February 15 and 16                            12-4 pm
Learn the joys of mixed media collage.  The workshop will address working with papers, fabrics, found objects, and past art work.  The materials used will be the choice of each student, but students are encouraged to incorporate some of their own prior art work into new pieces. The objective of the workshop is to explore new mixed media techniques and excavate each student’s authentic voice in their art.
