Watercolor classes and fun with drawing at Art Center Morro Bay


More than 25 years ago Marjory Abeyta fell in love with her first Arabian horse, Wind Khloud and this special bond started her to begin drawing realistic equine portraits. On Monday, July 10 from 3 to 5 p.m., she will present a demonstration of equine portraiture.
Abeyta’s demonstration will include techniques with traditional charcoal, graphite, and Cretacolor Nero pencil, an oil based charcoal. She will share with her audience the advantages of various types of papers, mediums, and methods in sketching and how to create textures and values to produce realistic looking artwork.
Marjory Abeyta lives in Los Osos and is an Associate Member of the Central Coast Watercolor Society.
This event is free and open to the public.
