"Watercolor Magic"
October 25-27, 2021
 

Learn to play, and have fun while doing the wonderful ‘work’ of art with internationally celebrated watercolorist, Stella Canfield! Stella will help you free yourself of the fear and judgment that so often prevent us from doing art. You will learn to relax and paint with your heart while exploring design, shapes, color, value and have fun doing it! You will feel immensely inspired and free of the myth-inflicted fear of watercolor. Stella will guide students working from their own photographs or sketches. Each morning starts with Stella doing a demo, followed by one-on-one instruction with each student throughout the day. One-on-one, in-depth critiques will be available after the workshop: $20 by email, $40 per hour via Zoom.

"Painting Autumn & Winter Landscapes"
November 2-4, 2021
 

Barbara will cover composition, value structure, color temperature, and handling of edges and mark-making, but she’ll slant things toward the unique characteristics of autumn and winter. For either season, she’ll discuss particularly how to capture the spectacular effects that 'grab us' when looking at these landscapes from life, and how to translate those effects from a reference photo so that we can paint what’s beautiful about these seasons instead of copying a compromised photo. All information presented will apply equally to oil and pastel. The first will include lots of demonstration time. The remaining two days will include a full demo, with oil on one day and pastel on the other. Students will paint each afternoon, with plenty of instructor help.

"Portraits in Watercolor"
June 20-24, 2022
 

Though often viewed as intimidating and challenging, painting the figure can be just as approachable as a still life and landscape, and brings with its accomplishment a unique satisfaction and reward. Ted will discuss the pitfalls and pluses of painting from photographic reference as well as how to achieve spontaneity, character, and life in your paintings. Class will include daily demonstrations and one-on-one interaction with class members. As Ted shares the specific techniques he uses to bring excitement to his figurative work, you will find your paintings taking on a new life. And, experience great fun in the process! Ted Nuttall is a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society, the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and Watercolor West.

"Impressionism in Action"
October 19-22, 2022
 

Colley Whisson believes "It is not what you paint but how you paint it". He has a strong belief that he is not copying nature but giving expression to visual ideas. Colley teaches the fundamentals needed to produce paintings with powerful light effects, loose brushwork and sensitivity to the subject. Colley's workshops are conducted in a positive and uplifting manner. In this workshop, he will focus on tone, composition, brushwork, color saturation, and pay special attention to the importance of edges. Colley employs a step-by-step process, demonstrating to all levels of students the best approach to constructing a painting. Weather permitting, Colley will conduct an outdoor demonstration to show his approach to working on site, or 'en plein air'.
