Tony Couch Five-Day Watercolor Painting Workshop



Take a little getaway this summer, while brushing up on your brushstrokes with Tony Couch’s 5-Day Watercolor Painting Workshop in Oxford, Ohio. Oxford, the quaint home of Miami University, lies about fifty minutes Northwest of Cincinnati near the Indiana border and serves as the perfect backdrop and inspiration for painters at any level. 

Tony’s exemplary experience enables him to instruct others in the art of watercolor painting. “Anyone can learn to produce good art. ANYONE! After all, it is a skill, and skill is teachable. The first thing for you to understand is YOU can DO IT! The key is GOOD instruction, and lots of practice,” says Couch.


The workshop takes place from July 14-18 2014 at the Oxford Community Arts Center. Each of the 5-day courses are from 9 am to 5 pm. The five-day fee of $450 is due in full by June 14, 2014. 

Many surrounding hotels are offering deals and discounts to those that are traveling from outside of the area, so be sure to mention “Tony Couch Fine Art Workshop” when comparing special rates via the link below. 

Whether you’re learning a new medium or merely delving back into an old steadfast, these workshops promise improvement and debunking the “mystery” of design. Each morning begins with a full sheet demonstration, instructed by Couch, followed by ample time for an afternoon painting session, in which you discover your own hidden talents. Near the cessation of each day’s workshop, critiques are offered by fellow classmates as well as the instructor, enabling you, as the artist, to see a different perspective on your own work. The positive environment allows you to grow as an artist by seeing works through the eyes of others.

Harmony Project and OAL Mural


Harmony Project’s award-winning program “One Week, One Neighborhood” comes to Franklinton during National Volunteer Week.

This year Harmony Project sought out Ohio Art League in hopes of creating a collaborative art mural for the outside wall of the Boys and Girls Club and for all the Franklinton resident to enjoy.

Ohio Art league artists Jonathan Ryan and Cyrus Fire collaborated with Harmony Project’s artist Jeremy Jarvis to design the mural. During the week volunteers are able to come and paint the mural. A great activity for family and friends, the mural is paint by number. Come out and be part of the mural!

April 21-24th from 9am to 3pm DAILY for volunteers with landscaping, mulching, planting trees and flowers, building a meditation garden, and restoring some of the rooms of the Boys and Girls Club.

The rich and culturally diverse Franklinton community is celebrated as people roll up their sleeves and work with others from across Columbus to leave their community better than they found it. “For You & Me” celebrates the diversity of Columbus by uniting Franklinton residents and business owners with neighbors from other parts of our great city. It’s a chance for Franklinton to introduce itself to many who know very little about it…and an opportunity for our city to grow stronger through the bond of collective volunteer service.

Come out and lend a helping hand! Remember, its National Volunteer Week and Earth Week!

To register to volunteer, visit Harmony Project
