Anne's supply list can be found by clicking on the link below:

Close study of classic painters has brought much influence to the work of Anne Hightower-Patterson. The figures of Degas and the watercolors of Wyeth were early inspirations in her paintings. Even today, images of these painters guide her choices of subject matters. Later, study of Winslow homer and John Singer Sargent has inspired her watercolors by their brilliance in color and design. The most contemporary paintings that have moved her are the works of Stephen Scott Young and Carolyn Brady. Their use of light and color make powerful statements in their works which are personal and moving.She is a member with Excellence of the South Carolina Watercolor Society and has had work selected for local, state and national competitions. She is also well known as a juror, speaker and teacher of watercolor.
Please bring your own lunch. Drinks will be provided by the Arts Council.
