  Featured Book of the Month

This month’s feature is a newly donated book entitled “Wet Watercolor” by Wilfred Ball.  “It explores the infinite possibilities of wet-into-wet watercolor painting for more fluid and spontaneous style.”  The writer “encourages you to experiment-change your palette, use tinted paper, mix mediums, or introduce new elements for a fresh, new approach.”  If you’d like to take advantage to see how this book may give you new ideas and techniques to use in your works, it will be made available to you at our February meeting!  Just stop by the Library Desk (in the back of the room) and speak with our Librarian, Gin Demers.

The MAA Library recently received four new VHS tapes Tony Couch- Watercolor and one VHS tape Watercolor Painting-Fixing and Finishing Paper on Panels by Dustan Knight for those watercolorist who are looking for something new to view.

We have a good selection of art books for all mediums for you to borrow and learn from. If your stuck on a certain subject and need a little help then come and browse thru our library and you might just find what you need to finish the project. It doesn’t cost you anything and keep it out for a month or longer if you need to.

The books and videos are all available to members at our meetings so please take advantage of the great variety of books, dvd’s and video’s.
