Artist Robert Jones will guide participants in creating a painting for family, friends or for personal enjoyment.

The class takes place March 13 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the library for those 14 and older, and is free of charge.

Watercolor paints, brushes, paper and related resources will be provided for the class.

Those with their own paints and related items should feel free to bring them.

No drawing experience or artistic skill is required.

Through demonstrations and individual, hands-on help, participants will learn some basic watercolor techniques.

The class will work on a “Birch Trees with Creative Landscapes” painting. Jones will guide participants through the steps to complete the finished painting.

Jones is a retired technology education teacher from the Hannibal School District and took up watercolor painting six years ago.

He is eager to share his experiences and lessons with beginning artists.

The “Learn To” watercolor painting session is open to 12 individuals on a first-come, first-served basis, but registration is required.

Those interested in this class must sign up at the Front Desk of the library.
