Jump in and have fun.  Time to dust off those brushes, loosen up, and regain your sense of amazement as you see the colors jump off the paper.  We have all let our talents lie dormant too long and it's time to experiment and try new things with painting!

This class encourages you to experiment with texture, the natural flow of the medium, and the play of lights against dark.  There will be an emphasis on simplifying the subject matter to what is needed to "tell the story."   Reference material is used, but not literally copied.


Students should purchase materials on their own. See Materials List here.

Note: There will be no class on March 28th. 

About the instructor: 

Susan Nordhausen was born in Lexington, MA, with parents who were both involved in the arts, and founding members of the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society.  After graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a BS in art education, Sue taught art at every age level.

Always learning, her watercolor studies continued with George Shedd, Mel Stabin, and Paul George.  In addition to showing her watercolors in the Plummer Studio here at the Society, she has exhibited at the Hancock Gallery,  the Waltham Hospital and, most recently, was selected for a one-person show at the Acton Memorial Library. At these shows, Sue has won numerous awards for her watercolor landscapes.

Over the last ten years, Sue has put out many calendars featuring her watercolors over the seasons and several sets of note cards featuring scenes from her hometown of Acton. Sue has practiced metalworking, enameling, weaving, and oil painting. Still, she says, “It has always been watercolor that has captured my imagination, probably because of its fluid state and the fact that one cannot totally predict any outcome but must continually make choices.  I strive to follow the flow of the paint and to interpret rather than to copy a subject”.

Although started very loosely, her work is realistic, and her favorite subjects are the ones found close to home.

Please take a look at our registration policy and our current covid policy before your class.
