The Marco Island Public Library and the Marco Island Center for the Arts work cooperatively to provide monthly art shows at the Marco Library branch on Heathwood Drive. Each artist will exhibit for two months. March and April 2013 will feature the works of Marco Island artist Joan Scherer.
Joan Scherer, artist and art educator, has been teaching watercolor at the Center For The Arts on Marco Island since 1991. Her classes are geared to several levels, including beginners. Joan has a facility for teaching the basics of watercolor and making it fun and successful.
Color is primarily what fuels her passion for watercolor. The water is the vehicle by which color is moved around the paper and determines if the color is rich or subtle, dark or light. Joan has a special love of warm weather scenery and is seen in the rich warm colors that she uses in her demonstrations. In addition, students are stimulated by the liberal critique sessions that are so vital to the watercolor experience.
