All levels
Instructor: Randy Hale
Course description: For those who want to learn some of the fundamental elements needed to produce a dramatic painting, this is the class for you! Join us as we explore the use of negative shapes in painting with watercolor. Find out how to execute both lost and found edges knowing how to soften and blend your edgework effectively is a critical step in producing expressive paintings. Getting a grip on good brushwork is a learned skill that can be taught. In order for edges of shapes to be varied (lost, softened, blended, or hard-edged) you need to find a comfort zone with your brushwork. This class will get you painting with confidence!

Each class will start with a short demonstration to explain and illustrate the lesson. Each class will include fully illustrated & notated lesson-handouts that break down the skill sets being taught that week. In addition to a demo and explanations by the instructor, there will be at least two hours of student painting time, complete with one-on-one instruction from your teacher.

Class participants should have some previous experience with watercolor, but will be geared for all levels.

All levels
Instructor: Dave Santillanes
Course description: This workshop is for all levels and will focus on designing a studio painting from
plein air studies.
The first day will focus on painting outdoors. Artists will paint plein air and will learn
to quickly gather the necessary visual information needed to complete a painting in
the field. Learning how to simplify a landscape and interpret color relationship will
be a primary focus of this workshop but other fundamental concepts will also be discussed,
including the importance of values, shapes and edges.
The final two days of the workshop artists will learn to analyze the information they
gathered in the field interpreting color and value relationships in order to create depth
in a landscape painting. Many outdoor principles will be discussed but with a greater
focus on composing a finished piece.
There will be slide presentations, demonstrations, critiques and lots of one-on-one
