In this art workshop discover how working small (8” x 10” or smaller) will help you make huge strides without laboring over your artwork! Through creating multiple paintings, you’ll gain strong design skills, learn to incorporate abstract passages, improve drawing skills, and step up the quality of your brushwork. Each day will bring new techniques and materials to explore: journals, paper, AquaBord, gessoed surfaces, and watercolors in tube, pencil and liquid form. You’ll leave with a host of skills that will serve you well in any size painting. Students are encouraged to bring a variety of reference photos, including travel, people, and animals. Days will be filled with exercises, demos, examples, and one-to-one attention. We’ll end each art class with creative ways to display finished artwork.
