Granite Rock B&B will host the third annual Fall Watercolor Workshop on Friday, October 22 and Saturday, October 23, 2010. The classes will begin at 9 a.m. at Rancho Rimar, in the beautiful hill country of Mason, Texas. Ginger Test, of Novice, Texas will again instruct the watercolor workshop. She is an avid photographer and has photographed scenes from Hawaii to Washington, D.C. and from Maryland to the Texas Gulf coast. Ginger immerses herself in her love of color and design whether the subject matter is floral, landscapes, animals, churches or western scenes.
Test and her husband live in a refurbished school house perched atop a small hill just west of Novice. They’ve turned this spacious structure into a charming home, retreat, wildlife habitat and art studio. Their small ranch keeps them occupied with white-tailed deer that visit twice a day, a great Pyrenees, a cat and two horses and many wild birds. Hundreds of books and a genuine stuffed brown bear complete the comfortable den. Ginger loves to share her skill with her students. She makes a yearly October pilgrimage to South Fork, Colorado where she conducts the Colorado Gold Watercolor Workshop for five days. She also conducts workshops in the Texas Panhandle, the Davis Mountains, and two (Fall and Spring Workshops) in Mason, Texas. Weekly classes are conducted in Abilene, Brownwood, Coleman and San Angelo. She has taught full time since 1982. Three of her watercolors have been accepted in the Coleman Juried art Show for October, 2010.
The Fall watercolor workshop is limited to 15 students. Cost of the workshop is $95.00. Class fills quickly. Please contact ginger Test, 325-723-2035 or Martha Kothmann, 325-258-4624 by October 15, 2010. Supply list will be provided when you register.
