How to stretch watercolor paper on stretcher bars.

A lot of people know how to stretch watercolor paper on flat surfaces.  I will bring an example in case you don’t know about that and can have a short discussion on that topic.  However, not a lot of people have ever stretched watercolor paper onto stretcher bars much like canvas.  I will demonstrate how to do that as well as bring examples of finished pieces along with two pieces that have been painted using stretched paper on stretcher bars.

Open to the public!

        We are holding our second annual 6 x 6 Show on the evening of December 8, just in time for Christmas gift shopping.

You’ll sign for them, take them home, paint whatever you choose on them, and then bring them back on November 18-19 (Friday and Saturday), that’s the December Membership Show drop-off date. We’ll hold the silent auction during the December Membership Show opening on December 8.
