We are all gifted with creativity. It is an inherent part of our being. Suze’s Prescott Center for the Arts is offering you Kathie Neal, an award-winning artist, who  has taught for the last 26 years. Many of her students have gone on to become accomplished artists. This course will help to unleash your latent talents and become adept at the art of watercolor painting.

Step-by-step you will learn about color, design, and composition. You will uncover the unique expression of YOU through your works of art.  Do not be afraid, Kathie’s mottos are “Perfectionism impedes Progress” and “Each misstep brings us closer to success.”

Sign up soon, classes are limited to 15 and are filling up fast.

Classes are held on Mondays from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

__________________________________

Things to purchase:

Watercolor paper: 1- 22” x 30” 140# Arches cold press watercolor paper. The paper largely determines your success, so no exceptions, please.

Palette: 12” x 16” covered rectangular plastic palette with ample wells and space to mix colors

Brushes: Synthetic brushes are both adequate and affordable. Size 1 round; Size 6 round, and Size 10 round

Paints: I highly recommend Grumbacher Academy tube paint. Although labeled a student grade paint it is excellent.

You will not need to repurchase paint very often as it goes much further than oil or acrylic paint.

To begin you need a warm and a cool shade of each primary color (red, yellow, blue) and 2 browns.  The following list is all you need to begin; more colors can be added as you go along.

Cadmium Red | Alizarin Crimson

Other Desert Cities
Written by Jon Robin Baitz
Directed by Parker Anderson

Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt. Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history—a wound they don’t want reopened. In effect, she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it. “Astutely drawn…juicy and surprising.” —NY Daily News. “Power, passion, and superbly crafted palaver stippled with blow darts of wit—this is what Baitz does best.” —NY Magazine.

Sherlock Holmes: Final Adventure
Sherlock Holmes: Final Adventure
Written by Steven Dietz
Directed by Layla Tenney

The world’s greatest detective has seemingly reached the end of his remarkable career when a case presents itself that is too tempting to ignore. With his trusted companion, Doctor Watson, at his side, Sherlock Holmes pursues first the case, and then the affections of Miss Adler—and in doing so, marches right into the lair of his longtime adversary. In this spirited, fast-moving and thoroughly theatrical adaptation, Steven Dietz presents Holmes at the height of his powers—surrounded by all the elements that fans of his exploits have come to expect: danger, intrigue, wit, humor and surprise. “The game is afoot, Watson—and it is a dangerous one!" Winner of the 2007 Edgar Award for Best Mystery Play.

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
Written by Edward Albee
Directed by Albert Hendeaux

George and Martha, the American theater’s most notoriously dysfunctional couple, have invited the young and naïve Nick and Honey over for drinks. What begins as harmless patter escalates to outright marital warfare, with the provincial newcomers caught in the crossfire.

We are thrilled to celebrate the 61th anniversary of the hilarious and harrowing play, arguably Edward Albee’s most famous and most vicious masterpiece. Winner of the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play.

“This is a Big One.” —NY Journal-American.

“…a scorching, scalding, revealing and completely engrossing drama.” —Women’s Wear Daily.

“…a brilliant piece of writing.” —NY Herald-Tribune.

Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
by Larry L. King and Peter Masterson, Music and Lyrics by Carol Hall

This happy-go-lucky view of small-town vice and statewide political side-stepping recounts the good times and the demise of the Chicken Ranch, known since the 1850s as one of the better pleasure palaces in all of Texas. Governors, senators, mayors, and even victorious college football teams frequent Miss Mona’s cozy bordello, until that Puritan nemesis Watchdog focuses his television cameras and his righteous indignation on the institution.

“A font of fun and friendliness, engagingly rich in regional nostalgia and spiced with delicate bawdry. The country and western score is a delight.” – Time

Appropriate for audiences aged 16 and up; strong language and adult situations.
