NEXT MEETING:

Presentation by Wet Paint and Hahnemühle Papers

THURSDAY, SEPT. 19, 7pm

Skating Center, 2661 Civic Center Dr, Roseville, MN 55113

 

Sept NSWS meetingMost artists use paper, but for watercolorists, paper is essential. Often, we don’t know much about paper and why it works or doesn’t for our application. Additionally, with so many paper options available, choices can be overwhelming. We’ll learn some paper history, how it’s made, why quality papers matter, all about sizing, weight, deckles, the features, benefits and differences between the many types of paper.

Joe Domeier, Hahnemühle Fine Art Paper and  Greg Graham, Manager of Wet Paint Artists’ Materials and Framing will share their extensive knowledge of paper with us, unpacking the mystery and providing valuable information (and free samples) surrounding paper. Joe will specifically demo Hahnemuühle Cezanne Watercolor, Quatro Watercolor and Mix Media Papers. There will be  some sheets for testing as well as the current selection of the Wet Paint Watercolor Paper Sampler to compare them to.
