ELK RAPIDS: Artist Mary Guntzviller will be teaching watercolor painting classes at Twisted Fish Gallery in Elk Rapids on Thursdays in November. The Northern Michigan painting class will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.Nov. 5, 12 and 19, and the classes are designed for beginning and intermediate artists. Each art class covers a different topic so Northern Michigan painters can sign up for one class or all three.

Guntzviller, who has been teaching for more than two decades, brings humor and fun to the class while still sharing tons of knowledge about drawing, shading, colors, perspective and life in general. She taught a series of classes at Twisted Fish in March.

“Mary’s detailed instructions are very helpful,” said student Dorothy McCormick, of Acme. “She does demonstrations, she shows us how to do it.”

Each class costs $35. Classes are held in the Cottage Gallery at Twisted Fish, which features plenty of table space and plenty of inspiring artwork. Some supplies can be purchased ahead of time (list available here) and Guntzviller will gather other, hard-to-find items into a kit that she will sell for $60. Please reserve a kit when you call to register and look through the list of other supplies to make sure you have them before your class. You will need all the items from both sources.

Guntzviller’s classes are hugely popular, so call 231-264-0123 to register.
