holiday Poppin Poppies by Wendy CunicoArt League’s workshop “Watercolor Holiday with Tricks of the Trade,” led by student favorite Wendy Cunico, is sure to get students in the holiday spirit with three days of creating personal, one-of-a-kind gifts. All skill levels are welcome. On day one, students will make their own holiday cards. On day two, they’ll complete a full-sized, seasonal watercolor painting. And on day three, students will paint a holiday scene on a throw pillow in acrylics to display or give as a gift.


In addition to three wonderful gifts, students will come away from the workshop with new techniques for softening edges and for depicting snow, tree bark, and other textures.

“Wendy is a favorite with our students. She’s experienced at teaching beginners and intermediates, she’s engaging and informative, and her projects are always fun. She’s the perfect fit for this workshop,” says Amy Wehrman, Academy manager.

Cunico is an Augusta-based artist who has won awards for her water media work. She owns La Petite Gallerie in Augusta, and is a member of North Augusta Artists’ Guild, SC WaterMedia Society, Aiken Artist Guild, and The Painted Ladies. She is honored to be have two pieces on permanent display in Augusta’s Arts and Heritage Center.

The workshop will be held Friday through Sunday, November 15-17, 9:30am-3:30pm each day. The cost is $350; $315 for members. A supplies list will be provided upon registration. To register or for more information, call 843.842.5738, email, or visit
