Customized Watercolor Workshops

 

Workshops for a club/group that wants to explore or expand their creativity.  Each workshop involves lots of demonstrations, new techniques and individual coaching to help students expand their knowledge in the world of watercolor.

 

"Color theory" ... students create color triads and do exercises to understand the principals of color mixing and the importance of using neutrals to make color "sing"!

"Wet-into-wet" ... students learn to loosen up and create luminous paintings by allowing the watercolor to move on the paper.

"Pouring Your Heart into Watercolor"... students learn the basics of this watercolor method without using brushes!

"Outside the Margins"...students learn to look beyond the traditional format of watercolor painting by segmenting the elements and re-arranging them either traditionally or abstractly.
