Workshop Description (from the instructor)

Students will learn to use masking fluid and liquid watercolor to create a painting with little or no brushwork.  After completing a class project, students will apply the technique to their own images.

Students will need to bring Pebeo Masking Fluid, 5 sealable containers to mix their paint in, (plastic or glass), 5 pipettes, an old bathmat or a couple of old bath towels, a small bar of soap or a small container of brush soap, an inexpensive brush for the application of masking fluid such as Cheap Joe’s Ugly Brushes, a wide flat brush, paper towels, and their normal selection of paints, brushes, and palette.

About the Instructor


Classic American Watercolors

In 2016, Anne Hightower-Patterson was selected by Watercolor Magazine as one of 10 artists nationwide as "Ones to Watch". Nominated for this designation by internationally known artist, Linda Daly Baker, she has been singled out for more and more nation recognition through the past few years.

A native of South Carolina, Anne is now in her fifth decade of creating art.

"I can remember sitting at my father’s knee when I was about five and watching him paint in watercolor. Somewhere deep inside the heart and mind of that little girl was an artist waiting to grow old enough to create. At the age of 12, the Charleston County school system provided the opportunity for art classes. It was the first step awakening that artist in me. The passion has existed within me ever since that time and has only grown stronger through the years."

"My first teacher, Virginia Fouche’ Bolton, provided a strong foundation in her disciplined approach to instruction. Upon reflection, I know I was blessed with one of the greatest instructors and she was a watercolorist, as well. Everything I do today, is built upon the foundation she taught during my high school years."


During the intervening years, Anne has earned a BFA in studio art from the University of South Carolina and a Master's in Education. After working 29 years in the public school system, Anne retired and now paints full time in her studio and teaches classes and workshops in Columbia, SC and throughout the Southeast. She is married to Ron White and resides in Saluda County near Lake Murray. South Carolina.

She is a popular speaker and instructor for art groups and guilds.
