Spaces available in 5-day watercolor painting workshop Sept. 21

A national watercolor painter will lead a five-day workshop for artists at all levels beginning Sept. 21 at North Star House in Grass Valley.

The teacher, Ken Hosmer, is coming to Grass Valley for a sixth time. Hosmer, a passionate painter and teacher, has been teaching workshops nationally and internationally for 25 years.

His work has been published in many magazines. Hosmer’s workshop at North Star House will devote the morning to a clear lecture and demonstration.

After lunch, workshop participants scatter around the rooms and outside to paint on their own. Hosmer circulates among the group, offering suggestions as needed.

Whether beginning painter or experienced, participants will get a lot from the workshop. Hosmer is a colorist who will help guide artists to pep up their paintings with exciting colors and contrast.

By learning the techniques of the watercolor process taught in this five day workshop, artists will become more aware of their visual environment and more confident in expressing it in their paintings.

The workshop starts Sept. 21 and is every day that week for five days, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The entire week costs $300. For more information, see Hosmer’s website at
