"Pen & Watercolor Illustration in Tuscany!"
June 12-19, 2024
 

Picture yourself sitting in an outdoor cafe in one of the piazzas, sketchbook in hand, immersed in capturing the life around you while enjoying a cappuccino. Let me share the techniques I use in my work using a very portable means of sketching - pen and ink and watercolor – to record the beautiful, sensitive lines of an old building or the bold strokes of a street scene. Learn to zoom in on the important elements when working in the field to create interesting compositions and lasting memories with texture and rich washes of color! This class covers pen and ink and watercolor wash techniques, composition and simple perspective.

"Painting Workshop with Qi Yang"
July 27 - August 3, 2024
 

Expressionistic Painting was the historic revolution of German art movement in the late 1970s and the 80s, which was one of the most important streams of the abstract figurative painting in the world. In this workshop you will learn figurative painting in an abstract style. The figure here means either the human or animal or imaginative figurations, whatever you like. It is free from your own idea and will be shaped from your insight feeling. And which abstraction of the figuration you prefer to paint – if you generate figurative form by drawing with lines, colors or by sketching with color stains of abstraction, could be individual and personal decided for your best choice.
