Joel Janowitz Painting Light: A Watercolor Workshop June 7 to June 12, 2020 Tuition: $650 Workshop: 9am-12pm Discipline: Watercolor OPEN TO ALL On-site Housing Available

This workshop explores watercolor’s unique properties, including transparency and clarity, to bring “light” and “space” into one’s work. Exercises include mixing and layering washes, using a full value scale from light to dark, adjusting color, and working wet-in-wet. Students are also encouraged to playfully explore the many surprises of watercolor as we build a working understanding of the medium. Class will work primarily from observation. Experienced students and those new to watercolor are welcome.
