Join Artist Steve Rogers from Florida for a unique opportunity to learn in his advanced watercolor workshop! “I believe I can most honestly say what I want to with my brush and ‘juicy’ watercolor paint.” – Steve Rogers Beginners and advanced painters alike will learn about light and color and the way watercolor behaves through “mini-demos” of paint application, “dealing with dark values in watercolor”, “secrets of painting reflections” etc. and how these operate in Steve’s full painting demonstrations. Students who are seeking to paint a convincing representation will advance substantially in his workshop, while those who wish to attain a higher degree of insight into their subjects will also be pleased. Lots of student painting time along with personal help is available every day. In both value and color, Steve makes clear how the medium of watercolor with its unique transparency and range of color and value can make our vision of a landscape live on the paper.

Instructor: Alice Glass Students will work alongside artist Alice Glass as she takes them through her process of painting with a palette knife. The instructor will use a landscape as her inspiration for this piece and will show students how she utilizes different techniques to create her art. Much of this class will be demonstration based but students will come out with their own paintings by the end of class. Supplies are included. Artist’s Bio: Raised in a family brimming with commercial and fine artists, Alice Glass has always had a deep love for art, but didn’t start painting until early 2015. Her first experimental paintings gave way to a variety of subject matter including abstracts, florals, landscapes, Mediterranean villages, beaches, still life, and commissioned pieces of family houses and pets. Most of Alice’s work features bright and colorful acrylic paint on canvas, and most of her work is produced exclusively with her favorite selection of palette knives. Alice’s style is to quickly create her subject matter with broad painterly strokes leaving thick, expressive bands and pods of colors mixed on her palette board as well as the canvas itself. In less than five years, Alice has created more than…
