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

This workshop takes place May 1st and 2nd, 9:30am – 4:30pm.

This dynamic workshop is designed to enable participants of all levels to quickly gain confidence in approaching the head and figure in a more spontaneous, intuitive and expressive way.

Demonstrations, class instruction, individual assistance, “show and tell”, and a series of “fun” exercises, will weave into class painting time. Special emphasis will be on achieving a fresh look of translucent flesh tones in the portrait with unique color changes, which will add to the excitement of capturing the essence of the subject. Capturing the essence of children will be included. Many “features” will be covered! All levels will benefit and help is available to those who are new to the portrait and figure. No Fear!!

Students will have an opportunity to work from their photographs or Janet’s. Our goals will be to “see” in new ways — bringing “life” and interpretation to the portrait and figure, and to discover intuitive color and design. Janet will provide some drawing “helps” for anyone who is new to painting people.

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 color and composition. As a teacher, I would like to enable students to find their connections with watercolor in new and expressive ways.”
