"Freedom in Watermedia"
February 11-14, 2019

The Freedom in Watermedia workshop is designed to help all levels of students paint intuitively, starting with no preconceived notions or outcome. The process will dictate direction as students use a variety of techniques to implement line, value, color, texture, shape, size and direction. Instruction will start with arbitrary mark making and color application, working transparent to opaque building layers using a variety of mark making tools, watercolor, gesso and acrylic. There will be regular comments and evaluation of work in progress concerning relationships between the elements and principles of design. It is entirely possible finished work may be representational, but the goal is a painting which is visually pleasing and aligned with the artist's personal aesthetic.
Location: San Diego, California
Instructor: Stan Kurth, NWS
Cost: $500 For SDWS Members, $540 for Non Members
Sponsor: San Diego Watercolor Society
