  • Watercolor Workshop: Understanding Value with Nancy Cheairs

    Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Afternoons
    1:00 - 4:00 pm
    January 9th - 11th | 3 Sessions
    $155 + $25 Materials fee | Beginner and up | Ages 15 +

    Of all the variables employed by the watercolor painter, value is the hardest worker. We can be very loose and casual with our drawing, we can be personally expressive with color as long as the relative values are reasonably true. By understanding the role that value plays in painting, artists can produce a believable sense of light, space, and substance.

    Tuesdays-Thursday, Jan. 9th - 11th, 1 - 4pm

    January 16th - February 20th | 6 Sessions
    $275 - Bring your own materials | Some experience required | Ages 15 +

    The emphasis of this class is individual artistic development and personal vision. Each student will develop their own thematically guided series that will deepen their artistic practice through two fundamentals: technique and visual thinking. Visual thinking teaches how to communicate a feeling, idea or a vision and how to reach into one’s own life for content and inspiration. Technique includes learning about composition, color, light, texture and space while gaining confidence with paint. Explore new possibilities within your work by expanding your visual vocabulary and confidence with paint. Students may work in the painting medium of their choice.
