Last winter, we ran a story about Carbondale artist Sarah Uhl, who is perhaps best known in the Basalt area because of the highly touted and very colorful map she drew of the Roaring Fork Watershed (and which is displayed at the Roaring Fork Conservancy’s River Center on Two Rivers Road).

Well, we just got word from Uhl that she will be offering a series of watercolor workshops Starting May 30 and running through June 22.

“I’ve been working hard to create a Summer Workshop series at my art studio in the historic Carbondale Jailhouse,” Uhl says. “I think this is a fun way of celebrating Carbondale’s heritage — by using the jailhouse for arts — as well as providing our community more creative outlets in our bustling Creative District.”

No experience is necessary, only curiosity. All supplies will be provided. Topics vary each week. The workshops topics include: An intro to watercolor painting, a date with Mount Sopris, painting with your imagination, developing your own creative voice and the creative process.

The final workshop will be an all-day plein-air painting adventure to Thomas Lakes at 10,200 feet elevation on June 22. All workshops are limited to eight people. Pre-registration is required.
