Oct 6 – Watercolor Class by Nina Urbonya at Ferndale Library

Oct 6 – Watercolor Class by Nina Urbonya at Ferndale Library

FERNDALE, MI – Do you want something special to hang on the wall of your home, something that is beautiful, endearing, inspiring? Why not create your own work of art at the Ferndale Library’s upcoming Watercolor Painting Class on October 6. This special Sunday afternoon event will provide all the materials for up to 20 students to learn how to paint their own colorful, floral works of art.

Registration is required, and can be done online or by phone: 248-546-2504.

Nina Urbonya is a watercolor artist who started her own business, Nina Belle Designs, as a means of spreading joy and beauty in the world. She grew up in St. Lucia (in the Carribean) before moving to the Metro Detroit area with her husband. Her paintings are inspired by her love for nature (especially flowers). Her style features bright and vibrant loose watercolor floral wreaths, and those designs can be found in some local shops around the area. She also has been featured in art shows across Michigan, as well as in her own online Etsy shop,

Urbonya has taught watercolor classes at churches and libraries over the last year, and she particularly enjoys the experience of sharing the technique of watercolor and seeing her students and explore and fall in love with the medium.

Watercolors are often sought out by artists who are seeking a calming outlet of creative expression, the lucid nature, and tender, elemental coating of the hazy colors are a way for creatives to unwind from stress. There is a muted, earthy quality to the colors that can reveal an inner-brilliance–and that’s exactly what Urbonya wants to do with her upcoming Ferndale Library class–inspire everyone to get in touch with a deeper sense for the beauty that surrounds them in their day to day lives.

Registered attendees will only have to bring their creative spirit, but are advised that there could be a bit of tiny residual splashes upon their clothing. All other supplies will be provided. Register here:
