Watercolor Painting Workshop
(with Roycroft Campus Artist-in-Residence, Kateri Ewing)
Saturday, April 22 from 9:00am - 4:00pm
This one day workshop will focus on developing a life-sized watercolour painting of a bluebird on a branch. The workshop will be geared for intermediate and advanced students, but beginners with some experience are welcome. Concept, value, edges, composition, color mixing, and brush handling will be topics discussed. The Instructor will give a step-by-step demonstration on her own painting and then give students time to complete each phase on their own. Students will also receive individual instructions and suggestions throughout the day, as time allows. The day will focus instruction on materials, composition, planning the execution of the painting, and various painting techniques.
Since painting is very a personal activity and there are is such a large variety of materials available, no supplies will be provided for this class. Instead, students are asked to purchase the materials that meet their individual tastes. Please click on the materials list for suggested items prior to the start of class.
