"Bold & Dynamic Watercolor: (Online)"
January 20 & 22, 2021
 

Join international award-winning artist, Kim Minichiello as she shares her techniques for achieving texture in watercolor. For an oil or acrylic painter, texture can be achieved by applying thick paint in an impasto manner. In watercolor, texture must be achieved to look three-dimensional on a two-dimensional surface. In this workshop we will paint a rusty, vintage gate. Kim will share a variety of techniques that she uses to give passages in watercolor interesting variety, as well as, imply texture on worn and aged surfaces. Since the class is interactive, you will be able to ask questions directly to Kim, show her your work through your camera to get personal feedback and critique and see your fellow artists’ work too.

"Online Art Mentoring-Customized Drawing, Painting and Mural Painting"
Anytime
 

The Online Art Mentorship is a long distance learning from the comfort of your home at the time that most suits your needs. You will be able to practice drawing, painting and/or mural painting at your own pace, getting systematic instructions and feedbacks on the art project you are working on. Note that, because of the nature of the one-to-one mentoring, each student will be taken great care and time in personalised critiques and lessons. This is a most affordable and time flexible learning practice which requires self-discipline and commitment. The students will need to be open to work under guidance and critique to be able to reach goals and experience art technique and creativity improvement.
