Event description

Description

In this weekend workshop, we will be exploring it all. Taught by two art instructors Chris Blevins and Suzi Vitulli, we’ve teamed up again to show you the incredible techniques we’ve learned on our travels to workshops around the country. As well as some super cool things we’ve learned through our own experimentation and professional artist journey.

You will have two amazing (grin) teachers to help you at each step to explore your own creative process. We will help you put it down on paper, and you’ll have a classroom environment with other watercolor enthusiasts that encourage your creative energies. It’s a fabulous way to soak in this fun style of watercolor.

Day 1 — We will explore:

  • Abstracts designs, concepts, and composition
  • Lots of textural elements
  • Layering of design in watercolor
  • The wonderful world of collage in watercolor

Day 2 — We will help you with:

  • Designing your projects
  • Incorporating the elements you planned
  • Understanding when your painting is done

We’re offering two types of tickets for this workshop:

  • Pay in full up front – $195
  • Pay $120 upfront, and $60 more in CASH at the event. Savings of $5 for you. This is a cash only discount

Some specialty supplies will be provided. See below for student supply list. Please also be aware we do have a cancellation policy which you can see here.
