Watercolor workshop coming to Watson Farm

The Watson Farm will offer two watercolor workshops on Saturdays, July 18 and August 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Rain dates are set for Sundays, July 19 and Aug. 16. 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. These all-day workshops 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 is $20 for Historic New England Garden & Landscape members, $25 for Historic New England members and $35 for non-members. To register, or for more information contact Heather Minto at 423-0005.
