Paint Out – March 8th – Island House Restaurant

We had a great paint-in at Toni Nelson’s house in Onancock on January 24th, chasing away winter doldrums. Hope you will join us for the next paint-out, which will be held on March 8th at the Island House Restaurant. (Remember that we eliminated February paint-outs in order to make the schedule more manageable for our volunteers.)

Gail Reichard (saltmarsh44@verizon.net or 757-336-3233) will be confirming other dates for upcoming paint-outs within the next month or so: we have some wonderful locations, including new ones you have not been to before, so hope you will be willing to travel around the shore a bit in order to have some interesting new experiences. Most of the dates will be on Wednesday or Thursday, since many of our participants have conflicts on Tuesdays. Looking forward to see many of you there.

An Introduction to Gouache, a little Grenache & Something to Nosh

  • Come join us for our first ESAL Evening Program and learn about painting with gouache. Gouache is often referred to as “opaque watercolor” and is known for its bright and bold colors especially when used on black background. We will have a short demonstation followed by an opportunity to put paint on paper (white and/or black) (Paint, brushes and paper will be provided!)
  • In addition, there will be a small selection of wines to sample and some light snacks to sustain you until dinner.
  • The program will be from 6-7:30 pm and held in the auditorium of Historic Onancock School.

FUTURE 2018 PROGRAMS

  • Willie Crockett, Tangier Native Son and Eastern Shore Painter
  • Willie will provide a demonstation, talk about his art and, (maybe-he says) read some of his poetry
