Plein Air Painting at Edisto Island, SC
March 26-31, 2017 — This workshop is for anyone with some experience painting in watercolor or oils who would enjoy painting en plein air. We will paint at beautiful Edisto Island, South Carolina. The location will provide us with salt marshes, shrimp boats, and plantations. We will cover how to isolate a composition by simplifying the scene and start with a good design which emphasizes a focal point. Demonstrations will be given on creating depth with linear and atmospheric perspective along with when and how to create soft and hard edges. Your works can be finished paintings or studies that you will use to create larger works in the studio later. Each individual will receive personal guidance through the sessions. Visit website

Carrie Waller - Painting Glass
July 28-29, 2017 (9:30-3:30) — Carrie Waller almost needs no introduction! She’s won many awards for her bold, dramatic and vibrant paintings, many of which are based on lights, shadows and colors seen through glass. She is widely known for her award-winning paintings of incandescent light bulbs, an idea that struck a chord with her when they were banned from further production. Carrie’s been living in Japan with her military family for the past two years, but she’s coming back to the States for a family visit (and our workshop) in 2017. Carrie is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the Louisiana Watercolor Society, and the Mid-Southern Watercolorists, and an associate member of the National Watercolor Society.
