Watercolor workshop at Castle in the Clouds

MOULTONBOROUGH — A few vacancies remain for the Lian Quan Zhen watercolor workshop at Castle in the Clouds running from Monday through Thursday, July 28-31.

A prolific artist, his work is exhibited in galleries, private collections, and galleries around the world.

In addition, he is a tireless teacher literally circling the globe to conduct his popular workshops.

Despite his credentials, his workshops are inviting to artists of all skill levels, even beginners. This year's course will consist of four 8 hour days, 2 days exploring Chinese watercolor techniques then 2 days utilizing watercolor techniques.

Course organizer, Estelle Smith notes "Lian's courses have been filled for 3 consecutive years and for good reason. Lian, in addition to being hugely talented, is friendly, laid back, great fun to work with, and his attendees love working at The "Castle", one of New England's most beautiful venues. Unexpected cancellations have opened up a few slots for attendees so I am hopeful that we can fill the course for the fourth straight year."
