The demo artist will cover permanence, colour bias and colour mixing to help you get the most out this challenging and wonderful medium that is loved by amateurs and professionals alike. Each attendee will receive a sample pack of Professional Water Colour materials. 

Featured Artist: Joe McCarthy

E. Joseph McCarthy is an artist with over 30 years of experience painting in oils, watercolors, acrylics and producing large ceramic tile murals. His most recent works include a series of large abstract oil paintings, “Cityscapes” that stem from his time spent in New Jersey and New York City.

As many of our customers may know, our free space at Rockport Blueprint is rather limited. Fortunately, though, our wonderful nextdoor neighbors at Watershed School have kindly offered us the use of their space for this demo. The actual demo will be taking place one door down from Rockport Blueprint at Watershed School on the corner of Mechanic and Washington streets in Camden.
