Allegany Arts Council presents first program in Young at Art Series

CUMBERLAND— The Allegany Arts Council is pleased to announce "Young at Art: Exploring Watercolor for the Never-Before Artist" to take place Thursday, February 18, 2021, from 2:00PM-4:00PM via Zoom. Young at Art is an initiative of the Allegany Arts Council, generously funded by the Community Trust Foundation. It is specifically geared toward novice artists 55 and older.

Each Young at Art program will focus on a different art medium, and is intended to provide a hands-on, interactive experience for adult beginners. Each program participant will receive a "kit" for the Young at Art workshop, complete with all the basic supplies needed to participate.  Participants also will have the opportunity to discuss, share, and network with other "young" artists.

The first Young at Art program explores watercolor. In this workshop, each participant will create their own watercolor landscape in guided instruction, discuss color values, paper and brushes, and interact with instructor Sue Arnson, a watercolor artist living in Garrett County.

Arnson took her first watercolor class when she was 55 years old, was immediately hooked, and launched her career in the art form. She has painted daily for 25 years, and displays her work at The Loft Shop, her home in Garrett County; The Gallery (in Oakland, MD); and occasionally at the Allegany Arts Council.

Registration and materials for the program are free, but limited to 10 participants. Registrants should be 55 or older. To register, please contact 301.777.2787 or
