UNION — The Union County Arts Council is in the process of signing up students for a watercolor workshop to be taught by watercolorist Larry Mauldin of Spartanburg. Mauldin is the past-president of both the South Carolina Watercolor Society and the Spartanburg Artist Guild. He is presently serving on the South Carolina Watercolor Society’s governing board and has taught art at the Spartanburg Art Center for 18 years. He also teaches workshops throughout North and South Carolina.
Mauldin’s work was on display at UCAC during January until mid-February.
“We were very lucky to have an artist of Larry’s caliber show his work in Union,” said UCAC coordinator Jackie Senn. “This was the perfect way to start our 2013 Featured Artist Series. Now we’re hoping to fill his workshop. Everyone who came to his show here was very impressed with his work and techniques.”
The workshop will be based on Mauldin’s painting “Mountain Solitude” and each student should be able to leave at the end of the day with a completed, or nearly completed, work. A materials list will be available at UCAC.
“Due to our limited space, we are only accepting sixteen students into this workshop,” said Senn. “We’re encouraging anyone who might be interested in attending to register early.”
The Mauldin Workshop will be held on March 16 at the UCAC gallery on Main Street in Union from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. An “on your own” lunch break will be given and students will have time to explore some of the local restaurants.
