Saturday Demo Days are continuing at the Art on the Divide Cooperative Gallery on Dec. 1, 8 and 15.

The schedule offers a talented line up showing different art techniques.

Chris McClellan demonstrates beginning watercolor techniques showing how water and paint work together at 11 a.m. on Dec. 1.

This is a lesson in basic watercolor methods, in addition to dabbling in abstraction and seeing things in a new way.

Make a greeting card using water, paint and your imagination. McClellan has taken many art courses after retirement and loves painting with watercolors. The gallery members hope to inspire visitors to try painting.

Lizzy Tillman will be using acrylic paint and house paint to show how she creates abstract art at 1 p.m. on Dec. 1.

She will be sharing her technique — from her approach on how to pick the perfect colors for the art piece, to creating layers and depth on the canvas.

Tillman will also show how to create just the right amount of movement and texture on the canvas using different objects and tools other than a paintbrush.

Divide Gallery members invite the public to come and see the artists working and do some Christmas shopping at the same time.

The gallery has many new items made especially for the holidays.

The winter hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The gallery will be open the week before Christmas for the customer’s shopping convenience.

Art on the Divide Cooperative Gallery is located in one of Georgetown’s historical buildings at 6295 Main St., halfway between the fire station and the American River Inn.
