Teaching is another passion for Pat. Her demonstrations focus on capturing just the essence of her subjects whether in figures, flowers or landscapes. She has taught at the Wallkill River School in NY, the Pine Shores Art Association in NJ, the Art League of Henderson County NC and conducted annual Painting-by-the-Sea workshops with her friend and colleague Janet Campbell.  Pat has received several local and regional awards and is a signature member of the North East Watercolor Society, Audubon Artists, Inc. and a former elected member of the New Jersey Water Color Society and the Salmagundi Club.

In Person! Alan Lewis Beginning Watercolor

Sunday Mornings 10am – 12pm
This beginning watercolor class will be focused on producing finished work.  I have noticed that I have learned best when following along painting with an artist, so that is the approach this class will follow.  The first week will be devoted to materials, helping negotiate between all the different options, and what the importance of each element is.  First time students are encouraged to attend, and to bring whatever you have.  We will then produce a finished painting each week with a different subject, and returning students are welcomed.  The approach will be to paint fast and loose, to cover the basics of watercolor by doing them, and hopefully to have some fun.
Students provide their own materials or rent the school kit for $10 per day.
