Learn watercolor painting technique with artist Alina Kurbiel at Lost River State Park Aug. 13, 2014

MATHIAS, West Virginia – Alina Kurbiel likes to paint. Ever since she could pick up a brush, her love of nature and animals has been reflected in her watercolor artistry. Kurbiel will be painting at the Lost River State Park recreation building beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014. 

"She asked us if she could share her process with other guests and park visitors during her stay," said Mike Foster, park superintendent. "We thought this would be a good opportunity for artists or art lovers to stop in to learn about watercolor art and about her methods,"

A resident of Baltimore, Maryland, Alina Kurbiel has family roots in Poland and her impressionistic art reflects her heritage. Her artwork and her painting process are demonstrated on YouTube. Her blog provides insight about the art and how she creates the scene or subject matter and some background about the subject.  

"She shares her talent and 'how to' with the world and we're pleased to include her in our Lost River experience Aug. 13," Foster said.
