|Sun after Rain, 18x36", watercolor/pastel|
I will be offering watercolor/pastel classes and workshops scheduled around my exhibit at MS Rezny Studio/Gallery. My goal in teaching is a little different than many artist-teachers'. Rather than teaching a particular technique or genre, I like to use watercolor and pastel to encourage each participant to find their own voice and make their own creation. Since watercolor and pastel are complementary mediums (mutually supplying each other's lack), we can cover the basics of drawing and painting, solid and texture, opaque and transparent, etc. And if you have taken any of my classes you have heard, "Redemption is always possible!" The focus is on having an idea of what you want to create and then experimenting to find out how to fulfill that vision. I request that participants bring their own photos to work from, so that we know the subject will be of interest.
That is the why, now for the what, when, where and how:
