Additional works will be on display from Anderson’s beginning students: Frances Carter, Jane Collins, Phyllis Long and Shirley Paine.
Harriet Anderson has been offering watercolor classes since 2010. According to Anderson, many retirees express a desire to learn to paint, and this group sought to provide a niche. Watercolor painting has a reputation for being difficult, yet in spite of that, the group has grown and is taking in students who are not retirees.
Harriet Anderson adds: “The amazing part is that most of the students have never painted with watercolors or even taken any art classes at all. Yet, within a few weeks, they are brushing in ‘wet into wet’ skies, blending evergreen trees along mountains and shading barns in snow-covered pastures.”
