Jim Parker, whose folk art watercolors are on display at the Mattapoisett Library during the month of November, will be providing instruction on how to paint a watercolor of the historic SouthCoast on Sunday, November 26. Parker has painted hundreds of paintings, and his goals and motivations for his folk art paintings are to recreate historic events, sites, and people’s activities. By illustrating the past, each painting supplements our history rather than just reading about it in a book. There will be two sessions: one for children from ages 6 – 12 (must be accompanied by an adult) from 1:15 pm – 2:15 pm and the other for teens and adults from 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm. Sketch pencils, erasers, and watercolor paper will be provided, and Parker’s expertise and suggestions will be available to all. Attendees can then bring their masterpieces home and paint their sketches. Suggestions for what paints and brushes to use will be offered. Free to all.
