Tues. – Fri., September 15-18, 2020, 9am-4pm

The Phipps Center For The Arts

109 Locust Street, Hudson WI

Above MevagisseyOnTheOtherSideOfTheTracksUsing basic approaches to watercolor painting as a springboard, students will explore different, innovative watercolor approaches and concepts. During this workshop, Fred will provide a series of exercises, lectures, and demonstrations that will enable each student to fully understand different approaches on how to develop a painting. He states: “When an artist understands the basic principles and elements of design, the subject matter becomes unlimited.  It is essential that artists go beyond the level of just recording facts. With this in mind, it he intends to convey to the students how to spontaneously respond to the subject matter in an unrestricted, yet semi-controlled manner.”  The different watercolor concepts introduced will enlighten both the traditional and contemporary watercolor artists. Some of the different topics that will be presented will include: abstract underglazes, negative painting, understanding how to maintain natural whites, wet-in-wet painting approaches and most importantly, composition and design. The innovative painting surface of Yupo will be introduced but students can elect to pursue their painting on whatever surface they normally use.
