from Lancaster County Council of the Arts
The Lancaster County Council of the Arts is partnering with the Lancaster County Library to bring art workshops to the community.
The workshops will be called Creative Tuesdays at the Main, an expansion of the arts council’s Creative Tuesdays concept.
Throughout the upcoming year, the LCCA will offer varying art workshops for hobbyists, beginners and professionals. New workshops will be held from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of every other month. These workshops will take place in the Creativity Lab at the Lancaster County Library, 313 S. White St., Lancaster.
The number of participants for each session will be limited to 12, and participants must be at least 16 years old.
Local artist Gina Noelle Ash will teach the first session, “Beginning Watercolor Painting,” on Jan. 11.

Ash, a Colorado native now living in Indian Land, has been painting since childhood and held her first one-woman show at age 16. She holds a bachelor’s degree in graphic design from the Colorado Institute of Art, and has exhibited in venues throughout Colorado, Texas, Maryland, Virginia, and South Carolina. She is a signature artist with the Virginia Watercolor Society and a signature member of the S.C. Watermedia Society. Her work in watercolor has won numerous awards, including first place in the Marian Hagins Art Competition in 2016 and 2021.
