Watercolor Design Workshop
June 13- 16, 2017
Tuesday - Friday: 9:00-4:00pm, Room 102
Instructor: Ted Lawson
For all levels, beginners should have some art experience, 18 years and up
A studio workshop, led by Ted Lawson, that explores the practical use and implementation of design principles while working with a combination of watercolor and other watermedia paints. The workshop provides the design basics for all types of painting, and is actually the grammar of art. Emphasis is on working with the elements and principles of design, while using conventional collage techniques and powerful digital collage available through the use of computer software. Students will be encouraged to imagine a story that their own photographic references inspire involving the figure and the location and the natural design in reference materials. Conventional and digital collage are the tools to build the story into personal dialogue for the viewer to enjoy. Students will receive plenty of personal attention, coaching and painting time. Tech savvy student artists are encouraged to bring laptop computers and photo software for some hands-on digital collage experience. Students are to bring their own personal photography or other acquired photos and snap shots to reference. Include posed and un-posed figures, architecture and landmark locations. Look for everyday scenes of walkers or cars or other familiar objects to be placed in foreground or background. Include photos of familiar places or places that you would like to visit.
*Detailed list of student materials will be emailed one week prior to start date.
