COVID CANCELED Negative Painting in Watercolor
June 13 - 20, 2020 (8 days) |
Sierra Madre, CA
Painting negative shapes (the shapes that occupy the space around objects) is the quickest way to take your painting to the next level. This fun workshop will help you understand what to look for to paint negative shapes and learn how to create depth in your paintings. Demonstrations and classroom exercises will help reinforce what you've learned. You will be amazed when objects "magically" appear as you learn to paint what is NOT the subject of your painting! Two Saturdays, June 13 and 20, 2020 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Painting Yourself Calm with Watercolor
June 4 - 26, 2020 (23 days)
Registration: May 25 - June 9, 2020 (16 days)
Whether you are continuing from last term or are picking up a watercolor class anew, everyone is welcome to join. Are you feeling a wee bit stressed in the midst of the chaos these days? Are you missing the energy of being among other artists? Do you remember how fun and free you felt when you painted as a kid? I will share how I use watercolor in a mindful and calming way to separate from the news of the day and subdue anxiety. Set aside the goal of creating a masterpiece (not forever, just for now). Subdue your inner critic by focusing on the process -- the simple joy of applying paint to paper and watching how it mixes and mingles, creating beauty on its own. You can let go of perfection because no mistakes are possible. All levels (everyone can paint!). In this online class hosted on Zoom streaming in real time, you will be able to view the other students in the class on your screen (phone, ipad or computer) as well as my demonstrations. No experience with Zoom? No worries, I will guide you through. 4 Thursdays 10:00 to 11:30 am June 4, 11, 18 and 23, 2020.
