Watson Farm to host watercolor workshops

Artists are invited to join Natalie Pfanstiehl in watercolor-painting workshops at Watson Farm on three separate Saturdays: July 14, Aug. 11 and Sept. 8. Each workshop will last from 9:30 to 3 pm. These all-day workshops will offer painters the opportunity to capture the many facets of the farm buildings, stonewalls and gardens through the medium of watercolor.

Pfanstiehl, who will instruct the workshops, has taught at the Newport Art Museum for more than 20 years. She will give a one-hour demonstration of landscape painting and spend the rest of the day assisting students with composition and painting techniques. All levels of experience are welcome.

Each workshop stands alone. The cost is $25 for Historic New England members, $40 for nonmembers. Preregistration is requested. To register or for more information, call Heather Minto at 423-0005.
