Freedom in Watermedia

The Freedom in Watermedia workshop is designed to help all levels of students paint intuitively, starting with no preconceived notions or outcome. The process will dictate direction as students use a variety of techniques to implement line, value, color, texture, shape, size and direction. 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. There will be regular comments and evaluation of work in progress concerning relationships between the elements and principles of design. It is entirely possible finished work may be representational, but the goal is a painting which is visually pleasing and aligned with the artist's personal aesthetic.

 

Mix it up on Canvas - Mixed Media/Collage on Canvas

Participants in the Mix it up on Canvas workshop will create mixed media/collage paintings on canvas using an intuitive process, starting with no preconceived or elaborate planning. The process will dictate direction as students use a variety of techniques to implement line, value, color, texture, shape, size and direction. Instruction will start with semi-arbitrary application of collage materials in combination with acrylic, gesso, acrylic mediums and assorted mark-making tools. There will be regular comments and evaluation of work in progress concerning relationships between the elements and principles of design. It is entirely possible finished work may be representational, but the goal is a mixed media/collage painting which is visually pleasing and aligned with the artist's personal aesthetic.
