123 E. McDowell St. in Matthews
Featuring Artist
Anne Hightower-Patterson
A Short Course in How to Create a Better Painting

A look inside the planning and execution process of a watercolor artist.  Through a Power Point presentation and examples of work, you will see how an image goes from idea, to photo, to painting.
I will also bring a few paintings and the planning steps used to make the plan for the painting.
A native of South Carolina, Anne is now beginning her fifth decade of creating art.     At the age of 12, her school system provided the opportunity for art classes.  It was the first step awakening that artist in her.   The passion has existed within Anne since that time has only grown stronger through the years.  In 1975 she began to focus almost exclusively on watercolor.  To learn more about Anne visit her website at http://annehightower-patterson.com/
Anne will be conducting a workshop at the McDowell arts center on March 15, 2017.  visit http://matthewsartistsguild.weebly.com/shows-and-workshops.html for more information.
