This workshop is designed to help students learn to watercolor in a spontaneous and innovative way while developing their own personal style. All you need is a sense of adventure! Emphasis will be placed on water ratio of paper and paint brush, color combinations, and elements and principals of design. My goal is to help students to be more confident while discovering new approaches and concepts to turn an ordinary painting into a “wow!”
“Painting is a very spiritual and cathartic process for me. It’s not just about a picture, but rather an emotional journey. I want the viewer to experience the atmosphere, the mood and that moment in time. As I paint, the emotions of sadness, joy, love, and hate manifest themselves in a very real sense. The artwork becomes a document of the subject, my thoughts and surroundings.”

Please don’t feel like you have to go out and buy all new! Bring whatever you have and we will work with that… We have some things here at the Pomerene that have been donated and will rummage through to see what we can find.
If you’d like to buy your supplies, the Pomerene Center can order them. Looks like it will cost about $60. Let us know asap.
