Easy! Watercolor – Adult Only at 4:30pm

June 15 @ 4:30 PM - 5:45 PM EDT

Easy! Watercolor Workshop Series

Join us for an afternoon exploring watercolor painting. During these in-person workshops, you’ll learn how to create watercolor art using various watercolor techniques, tools, and materials. The facilitator will also introduce some sample works by master watercolorists for inspiration and show you how she uses watercolor paintings as sketches and visual journals.

NEW! Starting in April, we will have two workshops: a 3 to 4:15 p.m. family session and a 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. adult-only session.
Each workshop lasts about 60 minutes, but participants can stay to
work longer or finish their projects for the extra 15 minutes.

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult, but please join as a family.

No prior experience is necessary; the projects are designed for all ages and all levels. At the end of each class, you will have a small painting or two ready to frame and hang on your wall.

The CAC will provide the materials and tools; however, if you prefer to use your own, please do not hesitate to bring them.

For: Families with children and adults, 10 participants max for each session.
Cost: $5 material fee (+ donate-what-you-can for the CAC)

Portrait Hack
Family with children: 3:00 pm to 4:15 pm (Register)
Adult only: 4:30 pm to 5:45 pm (Register)
There are many techniques for painting portraits with watercolor, but this workshop will show
you probably the easiest way. The facilitator will demonstrate how to trace lines with pencils
from BW photocopies, and we will paint within the lines traced on watercolor paper.

Registration is required to participate.

About the facilitator:

Tomo Mori
Tomo Mori

Tomo Mori is a native of Japan and a West Harlem-based artist who focuses on fiber art installation and collage.

Tomo learned watercolor rigorously under a master watercolorist from age 14 to 15 to enroll herself at Tokyo Metropolitan High School for Music and Fine Art, and she was accepted to the school with a perfect score.

Watercolor is not central to her current art practice; however, she uses the skill to sketch her ideas or keep a visual journal. When she paints watercolor, she finds freedom, lighting her spirit. Perhaps because they are just sketches, or the medium is easy to manage. Through these workshops she wants to share the joy and therapeutic nature of watercolor painting.

Tomo’s work has been exhibited in various venues like Columbia University, Scope Miami, Laundromat Project, Rush Arts Galleries, Governors Island, Newark Museum, and Christie’s. She received a commission from MTA and completed a laminated glass and metal installation in 2018. She participated in the Winter Workspace Residency at Wave Hill in early 2023. She is currently working as a studio artist at the Children’s Art Carnival.
