Fremont Art Association Offering Children’s Workshop

FREMONT – The Fremont Area Art Association want to meet your budding artists, with two new workshops geared at kids age 6 and up.

The Art Association’s two-session “Getting Color on the Paper” workshop will meet on Wednesday, July 17th & 24th.  The same class will be offered in two different age groups:  9:30-11:30am for ages 6-11 and 1:00-3:00pm for ages 12 and up.  Ages are suggested, but flexible.  Columbus watercolor artist, Lois Smith, will instruct.

This workshop is designed to give students an introduction and practice with techniques, tools, and lots and lots of color!  The first day is devoted to watercolor; the second, drawing.  All professional-grade matereials are supplied and included in the fee of $35 for members or $40 for non-members. .  Students are invited to bring a sketchbook and a small fold-up camping stool, if they have them.

Lois Smith lives in central Nebraska surrounded by the landscape that she loves.  Guided by inspiration from her creative grandmother, Lois has developed a distinctive and expressive painting style that has evolved over time through taking workshops with nationally known artists. She shares her love for watercolor and her vivid use of color by teaching both youth and adults in groups or as individuals in her studio, through Central Community College extended learning classes and the Norfolk art center.

Registration is requested no later than Wednesday, July 10.  Get more class details and download a registration form on the classes-workshops page of the FAAA website:  You may also register by contacting the gallery:  call (402) 721-7779 or email
