Hope you're doing well this spring . My year has gotten off to a very good start except for taxes and IRS, but that's another story.

Freedom in Watermedia Workshop

This workshop is designed to teach students to paint in an intuitive manner starting with no preconceived notion or outcome. There will be no preliminary planning or drawing. Emotions and feelings will dictate direction as students use a variety of techniques to implement color, texture, line, shape and value. Instruction will start with arbitrary mark making and color application, working transparent to opaque building layers using a variety of mark making tools, watercolor, gesso and Acrylic. The intuitive process relies on "seeing" so there will be constant evaluation of work in progress and relationships between shape, texture, line, color and value. It is entirely possible finished work may be representational, but the goal is something aesthetically pleasing, unique and reflective of the artist's mind.
