Watercolor Classes Begin at Merryspring January 5th, 2017

Camden/Rockport, Maine - Lesia Sochor will begin a new five-week session of intermediate watercolor classes at Merryspring on Thursday, January 5 from 9 a.m. to noon.

A graduate of The Philadelphia College of Art, Sochor is a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher who believes "anyone has the ability to create." While her classes focus on technical skills like edge control, tonal values and composition, she also encourages students to discover personal style and creative interpretation.

Sochor has lived, painted, exhibited and taught in Maine for more than 30 years.  She has been a visiting artist in Maine schools through the Maine Arts Commission, and she co-founded the Art Annex, a school in Belfast for youth and adults. She teaches annual art programs at Waterfall Arts and is currently teaching a teen program at Ironwood in Morrill, Maine.

The classes will run on January 5, 12, 19 26, and February 2 from 9 a.m. - Noon.  Class size is limited, so pre-registration is required. The cost for the five classes is $190, with a $20 discount for Merryspring members.  To register please call 236-2239 or email us at
