Workshop Overview

Create paintings by washing watercolors over natural materials like leaves, grasses, shells, stones, and sand. We will be working on Claybord, a surface that allows for bright colors and special textural effects, as well as hot press watercolor paper. The techniques, however, can be used on many other surfaces. Learn how to use natural materials as design elements, how to work on Claybord (which is similar to painting on Yupo), and how to work with watercolors (layering, negative space painting, etc.). You will come out with a minimum of two finished paintings.
