Watercolor workshop at Watson Farm Sept. 17

The Watson Farm will offer a watercolor workshop on Saturday, Sept. 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Artists have enjoyed the scenic landscapes of the historic Watson Farm for over 100 years. Located in Jamestown, the farm offers panoramic vistas of the pastoral agricultural seaside landscape. This all-day workshop will enable participants to experience and capture the farm landscape and architecture through the medium of watercolor.

Artist Natalie Pfanstiehl, who has taught at the Newport Art Museum for nearly 20 years, leads the workshop. Her work has been shown in national, regional and local juried shows and received numerous awards. She will give a one-hour demonstration of landscape painting and spend the rest of the day assisting students with composition and painting techniques. Students should bring their own painting materials and a bag lunch. All levels of experience with painting are welcome. The workshop costs $35 for non-members and $30 for Historic New England members. To register and request more information, contact Heather Minto at 423-0005.

The Watson Farm is a 280-acre working farm owned by Historic New England. Historic New England, presented by the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities, is the oldest, largest, and most comprehensive regional preservation organization in the country. It offers a unique opportunity to experience the lives and stories of New Englanders through their homes and possessions. For more information, visit online at www.HistoricNewEngland.org.
