A couple of short but important local art updates and heads up. If anyone in the valley is interested in learning the delicate art of Chinese watercolor, they need look no further than our own Wenatchee Valley College. This summer Stacy Drescher will be the instructor for Chinese Watercolor Painting: Birds and Flowers . Stacy will encourage her students to explore and enjoy the meaning and beauty of this ancient painting style. The focus in Chinese watercolor, she explains, is on the essence rather than the literal likeness of the flower or bird. The class will meet Tuesdays from 3-5pm, will run from July 19-Aug. 9 and the cost is only $49.00. What a bargain.
And, this coming week, Brooke Page at the Valley Academy of Learning has invited Martha Flores to speak to her students about art and the value of exploring and giving expression to ones creativity and to show them her art. What a treat for the kids at the Valley Academy of Learning.
