Crisp Museum Hosting Watercolor Workshops June 12-13, 26-27


The Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus is hosting watercolor workshops June 12-13 and 26-27.

June 12-13 is open to adults only and will take place from 1-4 p.m. June 26-27 is open to high school age participants and will take place from 1-4 p.m. Preregistration and a $25 fee is due by June 5 at Seating is limited. A supply list will be provided.

During this workshop, taught by local artist Brenda Seyer, participants will explore watercolor’s abilities as they create practice works with their own creativity and from reference images.

The use of watercolor can be purposeful where the painter manipulates pigments with other materials or as carefree as letting the pigment flow across the surface with minimal manipulation.

Seyer’s workshops are for an introductory level painter. The adult session includes instructions in painting realistic objects, animals and landscapes. The high school session covers a variety of techniques and methods of creating with watercolor.

In both sessions, Seyer will demonstrate how watercolor can create a variety of images, from solid to translucent and light to dark, using single and multiple colors.

The Crisp Museum is located in the Cultural Arts Center at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus, located at 518 S. Fountain St. in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
