PAL Presents: A One Day Painting Workshop “Joy of Painting with Watercolors”
Featuring: Meghana Mitragotri
July 8, 2023, 10:00 AM-4:00 PM at the Amador Recreation Center, Black Avenue, Pleasanton, CA
Watercolors are an ancient form of painting identified by their extreme delicacy and finesse in style and presentation. Meghana Mitragotri firmly believes and encourages eager art explorers to try this medium which she describes as both flexible and forgiving.
Welcome to a fun day of learning techniques, tips, and tricks of this dainty form using unique and unconventional methods and tools. All participants are guaranteed to leave with a completed watercolor painting and greeting card, as they follow a time-bound approach in working with this medium.
Meghana’s inspirations are typically nature-centric including quaint country sides, beautiful blossoms and birds. Her draw to the medium is the versatility of the water-based paints which highlight a sense of purity and serenity in the finished work. The focal point of her 30-year association with watercolors includes masterful use of colors and light to portray the magnificence of her subjects. With numerous showcases and accolades to her credit, Meghana’s true passion lies in demonstrating and teaching this soulful artform to interested learners.
