Local Watercolor Artist Visits HWRHS

Local watercolor artist Karyl Hayes visits Studio Art to discuss her career as a watercolor artist. Mrs. Hayes recently had a show at the Cutler School in Hamilton, MA.  She spoke about her journey as an artist and shared several pivotal pieces that marked significant points in her art making.  She passed around some of her sketchbooks so that students could take an up close look at her process and notes.  At the end the students practiced mixing secondary colors as well as brown and gray using just the primary colors.  Some of the key take aways were: 

* learning to see
* using quality materials
* taking risks
* being excited by your subject matter
* making art is a life long journey, not something you learn by taking just one class
