Animal Love, Loading Dock Gallery’s April show, celebrates animals familiar and wild. Work ranges from abstracted to representational, and includes photography, sculpture, and collage. Animals mean so much to so many. Intelligent, resourceful, animals are our guides, teachers, and friends in this world.
Watercolor has a reputation of being hard to control, with precision and detail difficult to attain. In this course, Lowell-based illustrator and painter Ashley Eisenman will help students to “learn to let go” and embrace watercolor painting as expressive, versatile, and fun. Through a varied set of classes, students will gain skills in the fundamentals of watercolor painting and composition, sketching, color mixing and choice, and how to create representational pieces from abstract beginnings. Students will be encouraged to experiment with a variety of subjects including abstract expressions, portraits of humans and animals, and pop-art.
