Join Artist Janet Rogers from Florida for a unique opportunity to learn in her advanced watercolor painting workshop!

 


   

Designed for participants of all levels, fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for this workshop. Janet will demonstrate various “fun” exercises geared to interpret flowers in a loose and expressive manner. Discovering the unique “nature” of individual flowers and “finding” new colors will be highlighted.

Demonstrations and individual help will weave throughout the workshop, with an emphasis on letting the medium of watercolor lead the students to new adventures in watercolor. (PLEIN AIR – in the studio!)

Some goals include “keeping the whites”, avoiding “mud”, intuitive color and composition.

Besides working with students individually and class demos, Janet and attendees will enjoy “Show and Tell” – an opportunity to see classwork together and enjoy! 

We will also explore an approach to landscape. – Students can bring some of their favorites – I will also supply a photo and drawing of a demo I will do that some can trace if they wish.

Artist’s Statement:

 

“I love the qualities of watercolor – its fluid nature. To me, the interaction of artist with the medium is like a dance – full of motion, feeling, and expression. I love to watch the painting develop and to discover new colors and compositions. As a teacher, I would like to enable students to find their connections with watercolor in new and expressive ways.”
