In this workshop, students will work with Herman to articulate their own vision and particular challenges.
The intention of this class is to meet each individual exactly where they are and to support them in the production of work in the classroom that expands their practice in a personal way. The format will lean heavily on individual instruction and will also include lecture and discussion and demonstrations of particular techniques.
A step-by-step process will begin with a fast foundation painting and will end with final approach options that are easy to learn and thought provoking. Unearth fresh and honest art inside yourself and learn to capture it with paint. Herman will teach you to find originality in your own work.
Learn to get started with new ideas in a way that is fun and fast! You will learn about color mixing, glazes, composition, drying time, thickness and edges to create an impressionist painting you never thought possible with watercolor.
We will be exploring landscapes, seascapes and streetscapes, focusing on various techniques. Expect to be challenged, to be brave, and to have fun!
Students are encouraged to bring their own images (no other artists') to work from, and previous work for Herman's appraisal.
