Workshop Description (from the instructor)
Join me for an adventure in painting, you will be learning and using creative techniques in watercolor and mixed media including some acrylics and inks. Collage techniques will be explored also. Basic composition is the secret to achieving success in your paintings, drawings or mixed media endeavors. Special emphasis will be placed on basic composition using the elements and principles of design. No matter what your style of painting is, this class will make composition easy to understand, and you will be able to approach your work with confidence.
A note about other mediums: this class will be taught with watercolor techniques. Most techniques will apply to acrylics, but please assume your own responsibility for translation to any medium other than watercolor. The assistant for the class will have some experience in acrylics.
