Watercolor exercises planned at Flourishes
SHELBYVILLE -- Flourishes Gallery and Studios will discuss watercolors at their Art Talk Tuesday sessions on Tuesday afternoons due to the request of regular attendees.
Art Talk Tuesday starts at 3 p.m. with an informal sharing and the hands-on session is held from 3:30-4:30 p.m. There is no fee but those attending are to bring their own art supplies: watercolors of various colors (preferably tube), an assortment of brushes, heavy watercolor paper, and photos to work from (preferably ones taken by the artist). Even though specific colors are suggested for each exercise, artists should bring what they have. The results will just vary.
Flourishes is located at 140 1/2 East Main. Sessions are now scheduled each Tuesday through Dec. 12. For questions call Carol at 217-827-5690.
