Watercolors & Wine Workshop

During this two-hour class (two sessions at 2PM and 6PM), led by local watercolor artist Melissa Hyatt, you will enjoy a glass of Suhru wine while painting a North Fork Coastal landscape. The workshop will begin with a mixology and watercolor making demonstration by Christie Jones followed by and introduction to watercolors as Melissa Hyatt shares tips and techniques for painting while guiding you, step by step, through her process to create a classic North Fork coastal landscape.

Learn about Christie’s non-toxic, handmade watercolor paints & paint making process through a meditative mixology demonstration in which you will watch watercolor paints be made. In the workshop you will learn how to paint landscapes, mix the paints, play with wet on wet techniques and wet on dry. Using color theory and with Melissa’s guidance you will learn to mix the paints to achieve every color of the rainbow. We will play with layering the paint to create the piece and add details while experiencing the magic world of watercolor.

This 2 hour class with Melissa includes a glass of Suhru wine and all Watercolor materials to create your own 5×7 piece. Attendees will go home with a beautiful, unique North Fork costal landscape watercolor painting as well as a complete watercolor kit including a trio of Christie’s handmade watercolor paints in recycled shells, paintbrush, and ten sheets of watercolor paper with which to continue your watercolor artistic journey.
