Fort Bend County Libraries, in conjunction with Sugar Land Area Artists, invites artists and art enthusiasts of all ages, skill levels, and art mediums to meet to learn more about educational opportunities in the area. The program will take place on Saturday, May 18, beginning at 10:15 am, with a meeting followed by a demonstration of watercolor painting in the Meeting Room of the Sugar Land Branch Library, located at 550 Eldridge.
Visual artist Barbara Jeffery Clay will demonstrate watercolor painting using bold, bright, dynamic colors. Get tips on composition design, values, and techniques, and learn about the patterns of shadows and light on subjects. Clay will also discuss the use of analogous colors to bring the subject into the light, as well as the usual value changes.
Clay is a signature member of The American Watercolor Society, The National Watercolor Society, the Watercolor Art Society-Houston, and other watercolor organizations.
Her paintings hang in many public and private collections, and her work has won many awards in juried competitions. Clay is author of the book, 10 Favorite Subjects in Watercolors, and her watercolor painting, “Snowing on St. Francis Church,” appears on Leanin’ Tree greeting cards.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the branch library at 281-238-2140, or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
