$45 per session ($40 Friends of SAC)
All levels – Ages 16+
Class 1, July 1: Beginner Basics, Seascapes, Fireworks
Class 2, July 8: July 4th Fireworks, continued
Class 3, July 15: Landscapes, focusing on composition and washes
This class will introduce attendees to the basic skills of watercolor and help them enjoy the process of creative experimentation. Students will learn to use the technique of washes by changing color into pools of water, manage spontaneity with control, and learn how to create variations of a landscape theme. This will help build a repertoire of skills and when to use them…and have fun doing so!
A supply lists will be emailed to attendees prior to the first class, or starter kits can be purchased in person.
$45 per class drop-in fee ($40 for Friends of SAC) will be offered after July 1, subject to availability, and in-person only on July 1, pending available space.

TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation.
