Tampa Realistic Artists was formed in 1956, by people dedicated to furthering the ideals and principals of fine art, providing services to artists and the community to establish and maintain a permanent Art Gallery in the interest of “Art to Live With”, and to offer art education through exhibitions, seminars, lectures, demonstrations, workshops, etc. for cultural enlightenment in the community. Through our services and education and outreach activities, our objective is to serve artists and to increase the public’s awareness of art.
Donna Morrison, FWS, SWS is going to be joining our team of instructors to lead a watercolor class on Tuesday mornings from 9 am - 12 pm starting in June. The class will be structured for anyone interested in painting, from beginners to advanced students. We can work on class projects as well as individual subject matter. This will be custom fit to meet your personal painting needs. You will need to supply your own materials, but if you want help getting started Donna is more than happy to give you a suggested supply list. The class will be limited to 15 students and has a two tiered cost structure. Students committing to a full month will pay $12/session. Those who want to pay session by session will by $15/session.
Donna is a realistic painter who enjoys subject matter ranging from everything Florida to travels abroad. She competes nationally and was recently named as one of the top ten up and coming watercolor painters in the country to watch by Watercolor Artist Magazine.
