Think backward into a work of art! This watercolor workshop involves the “Atelier” approach which goes back to a concentrated method derived from teaching practices begun in the late middle ages and the renaissance. In this art workshop you’ll learn how to really look at an object, its situation, and how to abstract and simplify the visible world. The dramatic use of light and color, line, texture, and chiaroscuro are focused upon as tools. Secrets of classical design will be revealed to result in a strong painting. Toward the end of the art class, these principles will be put to the test in the form of the student’s own artwork. John shares his unique approach to painting, and he introduces the work of artists from the past, with the objective of showing their color and design principles. Moreover, each student receives personal, focused instruction. Students not only learn to paint, but also, are introduced to Art History.
John Wilkison graduated from Vanderbilt University with a Masters Degree in Painting and Studio. He has been working in watercolor since 1970.
