Watercolor Workshop: “Making Every Stroke Count” with Pittsburgh Artist Bill Vrscak

Emphasis in this workshop will be on helping students find the essential elements and qualities in the subject matter, and through demonstrations and group critiques show how to present these essentials in a simple, direct way. The object is to eliminate extraneous information and details, and simplify the subject. Students will be encouraged to look beyond the representational aspect of the subject to the dynamics of contrast, light, movement, space, etc; elements which help make paintings come alive. Students may work outdoors, weather permitting, or indoors from their own photos and sketches.

We will have fun learning watercolor techniques while creating unique cards. Some basic color theory will be discussed.

This fall, Latrobe Art Center, Latrobe-GLSD Parks & Recreation, and visual artist Sarah Hunter are working together to bring art classes to kids in grades 1 - 6!


We are going to celebrate all the things we love by making them into a collage! We will search through magazine clippings, paper, and pictures to make a composition that is uniquely you! Students can feel free to bring in any pictures or clippings from home to add a personal touch to their masterpiece. Each student will go home with a finished collage.

Registration required through Latrobe-GLSD Parks and Recreation (not Latrobe Art Center). To register, call 724.537.4331 or visit Latrobe-GLSD Parks and Recreation online.
