Service Description

In this watercolor class, you will begin to see and capture your surroundings in a new way. We will intimately explore light and texture on surfaces and translate our experience into loose gestural watercolors. Sherry likes to romanticize everyday life in an impressionistic style. Students will receive instruction in composition, contrast and color. We will work with using the white of the paper through the use of negative painting and use of miskit/liquid frisket. We will go over the use of brushes and effects. We will work from real life and photographs. Students will learn to see like an artist, paint negative spaces, do value studies and know their materials. Class will be positive and encouraging -- a growth experience. There will be demos, then students will receive tips on their own work. You will be encouraged to keep a sketchbook and challenge yourself at home. Works may be brought in for tips or critique. Drawing skills are not required, but learning to draw will also improve your painting skills. Sherry grew up in Gulfport, Mississippi. She has a BFA in graphic design with an English minor. She graduated from the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and also attended the University of Southern Mississippi and Mississippi State University. she worked in the printing and magazine industry, then on to corporate communications, always including fine art, illustration, and classes. While committing time to family and life as a military spouse, she turned from graphics back to her first love, painting. Her art evolved through moves from Alabama, Texas, Alaska, and eventually back home to Mississippi. Watercolor portraits are her specialty, and she enjoys creating meaningful commission pieces. Her impressionistic style can be seen in her landscapes depicting places she has lived and traveled. Her work can be found at The Pink Rooster in Ocean Springs. Community involvement is important to her. She is a member of several local art organizations, Mississippi Art Colony, and plein air groups that meet across the state and coastal region.
