March 6: 6:00- 8:00 pm. “Feel your way into painting” with Brittany Schuler. Take Emily Carr’s words to heart: use watercolor pencils to create a sketch in the exhibition space, surrounded by the artist’s inspiring works, then create a watercolor painting in the studio. Just add water and details to your sketch and voila!
