Class / Workshop  |  Pencils in your Palette

Sunday, April 26, 2015, 2–5 pm

International Center for Watercolor

Norine Spurling

$36 members/$46 not-yet members

In this workshop we will look at ways in which watercolor pencils can be integrated into a watercolor painting. Participants will explore ways watercolor pencils can be used in the construction of a painting and how they can add emphasis to values.

Norine Spurling was born in the semi-tropical island of Bermuda and as a child attended painting classes with a local watercolor artist who encouraged her to look at art as a career choice. Spurling attended Moore College of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art in Philadelphia where she was exposed to a wide spectrum of art studies. After living in California and raising a family, she moved to Western New York, completed her formal education at University of Buffalo and taught drawing there for several years. Norine Spurling is the past president of Buffalo Society of Artists and serves on the Board of Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society. Her recently published book of poetry is titled POEMS.
