Watercolor: Abstractions in Nature

Jan Heaton

Tuition $1,155
Code D1223-22

This course allows students to capture and interpret nature via the fluid medium of watercolor. Participants learn to simplify and abstract subject matter with minimal marks and a broad spectrum of techniques to create bold and captivating works on paper. They develop color palettes and imagery to stretch their preconceived notions and initial meanings. This workshop guides students through the process of observation, inspiration and translation of the seen world into abstract, graphic and bold watercolors. Participants learn how to economize their mark-making and focus on elements like pattern and color, observing details in nature with a fresh perspective.
