Adams County Arts Council – Supporting the arts in Adams County, PA


The Adams County Arts Council’s 3rdthursdaynoon series continues
on April 19 at noon with award winning artist and popular instructor
Steve Bleinberger’s watercolor demonstration entitled,
“Paint it Fast. Paint it Loose.”

Steve will “race the clock” in a demonstration of his favorite technique which he uses in creating dramatic sea and sailing watercolors. The free hour-long program will be held at the Arts Education Center,
125 S. Washington St. in Gettysburg.

A Towson, Maryland resident, Steve is an award winning artist and popular tristate area instructor. Though fluent in a variety of media, transparent watercolor is his favorite. Steve’s preferred subject matter reflects an affinity for the Chesapeake Bay region, a passion for sailing, the natural beauty of the shore and the bay’s ever changing dramatic seas and magnificent skies.

He holds a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond and pursued advanced studies at Baltimore’s Maryland Institute College of Art. He is the recipient of numerous local, regional and national creative awards such as top honors in the AWC Maritime Museum Show, Annapolis, and in the RiverArts “Water Show” in Chestertown, Maryland.

Bleinberger’s next class at the Arts Education Center is a hands-on workshop on Saturday, April 28, 9 am to 3 pm, where students will explore a variety of papers, paints, brushes and techniques. Cost is $72 for Arts Council members/ $80 for nonmembers.

Pre-registration is required. The 3rdthursday program on May 17 will feature Brandon Stone and murals from the Hall of Presidents which will be on display at the center.
