Course Title: Abstractions in Watercolor. Course Description: Designed for those with minimal watercolor experience, this workshop invites you to find a balance between the spontaneous and controlled qualities of the medium. Build a foundation in traditional and experimental watercolor techniques, explore the evolution of an abstract form from observed reality, and develop a new visual language. Presentations and group discussions introduce you to abstract image-making, while demonstrations focus on the various watercolor techniques and tools that can be utilized to create a finished painting. Come prepared with a singular subject, such as a leaf, sketch, or object found in nature, and from that source, learn how to subtract, isolate, redefine, and translate the information into abstract compositions. Jan provides one-on-one feedback throughout the process. Expect to leave this workshop with a small series of works that explore your one central subject. Students from all stylistic backgrounds are welcome, however the non-representational style if emphasized. Supplies are not included. Tuition is $450 for Members, $490 for non-members.  Travel and accommodations are not included.
