Join us for Classical Music and Painting (Webinar) on Thursday, February 25 at 1 PM.

You could say art and classical music go hand-in-hand – classical music has inspired some of the world’s most famous masterpieces, after all. Now, you yourself can be inspired in this interactive seminar led by Central Florida-based artist Grace Sellers. Create guided art while listening to classical music, letting it influence your own masterpiece. Learn basic watercolor techniques and have a chance to create (and perhaps share) your own paintings with others. If you’d love to create art but are also not sure how to get started, this program is for you.

By participating in this program, you can expect to:

  • understand basic watercolor techniques;
  • understand water-to-paint ratios;
  • and distinguish between a wet-on-wet painting technique and a wet-on-dry painting technique.

Special Instructions: Participants are encouraged to bring the following art supplies to this program.

  • Watercolor paper
  • Watercolor paint set
  • palette or paper plate
  • paint brushes
  • A cup of water
  • paper towels
  • garbage bags (to cover your workspace).

This program is presented by Grace Sellers and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
