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

This workshop takes place April 29th and 30th, 9:30am – 4:30pm.

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 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 class work together and enjoy!


Students may also choose to register for Janet’s “Expressive Watercolors – The Head and Figure” workshop. See link below:

Expressive Watercolors – The Head & Figure

Students may choose to take one or both of Janet’s back-to-back workshops. If registering for both workshops, use discount code “watercolor” to receive $25 off each class.

*Must register for both to use promo code.

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.

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