Lesia Sochor will begin a new four-week session of watercolor classes at Merryspring on Thursday, January 17.
A graduate of The Philadelphia College of Art, Sochor is a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher who believes “anyone has the ability to create.” While her classes focus on technical skills like edge control, tonal values and composition, she also encourages students to discover personal style and creative interpretation.
Sochor has lived, painted, exhibited and taught in Maine for 30 years. She has been a visiting artist in Maine schools through the Maine Arts Commission, and she co-founded the Art Annex, a school in Belfast for youth and adults. She teaches annual art programs at Waterfall Arts and is currently teaching a teen program at Ironwood in Morrill, Maine.
The watercolor classes run from 9 a.m. to noon each Thursday. Class size is limited, so pre-registration is required. The cost for the four classes is $150, with a $15 discount for Merryspring members. To register please call 236-2239 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
