Would you like to attend a vibrantly fun watercolor workshop that will challenge your skills? The Cape May County Library will offer a six-week art class “Fearless Watercolors for Intermediates” presented by Sue Rau at 9:30 a.m. on Saturdays beginning August 27th. The program will take place at Upper Cape Library located at 2050 Route 631, Petersburg.
If you have met the challenges of previous art classes and are looking to step it up, now would be a great time to move forward in the art of watercolor.
