Location: First Coast Cultural Center, 3972 Third Street South, Jacksonville Beach
$55 per person – Supplies included

Wine & Watercolors

Class Description

I mean, honestly, who doesn’t love wine? I create the majority of my watercolors while drinking wine, and I want to do that with you. I have painted with wine in the past and wine in a glass has been the basis for many of my paintings. In this class, will use the wine in different tones, through adding water to lighten the color on the paper. We will recreate the wine in the glass, with wine, watercolor, and a little line work with my help. We will vibe and talk and listen to great music. Of course, you can drink the wine as well. My goal is for us to create a painting that you keep next to your wine at home.

About Teresa

Teresa Cook is an Abstract Architectural Watercolor artist, born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. She has been painting watercolor since 2012 and obtained her BFA from University of North Florida. Teresa is an award-winning artist, including most recently winning second place for her painting at the Jacksonville Bicentennial Art Exhibition. Over the last ten years, she has been traveling to different countries as well as around her native city. She creates mini watercolor abstractions, but she has always found pleasure in the landscapes and buildings that have been created over time. Each of her watercolor and ink paintings are created on a smooth paper called, “Yupo”, and are meant to capture a moment in time without the interruption of people. You will not see human interaction within her art. Teresa traveled to Amsterdam for the 2019 Urban Sketchers Symposium, and is working on attending in Paris, France in 2022. She is also an art instructor, and her workshops are now in session for 2022.
