Abstract Composition with Watercolor

GAGE ACADEMY
Tuesdays, April 13 to May 11, 2021 (5 weeks)
9:30 am to 12:30 pm
Level: Intermediate
 

There is no hard and fast formula for creating good abstract composition, but there are guidelines to help develop your critical perception of what works and what doesn’t. In this workshop, we will explore design principles that can bring a painting to life, using compositional tools that artists have deployed for centuries. Through individual and group critiques, we will explore how these principles can be applied to your own work, giving you the solid foundation you need to continue your own explorations, long after the class is over. Examples by noted water media artists will be shown in each class.

Tuition: $265

Demystifying Watercolor: Foundational Technique

GAGE ACADEMY
Thursdays, May 20 to June 17, 2021 (5 weeks)
6:30 to 9:30 pm
Level: Beginner
 

This workshop is designed for the beginning watercolor student. It is a fun, no-pressure way to explore the watercolor medium! We will focus on watercolor technique and a clear understanding of the pigments, brushes and papers, but also have time for experimentation, using watercolor and abstraction as the vehicle for personal expression. Over the five sessions, we will cover best practices for Handling a Brush, Controlling Water and Pigment, Mixing and Layering Colors, and Creating Textural Effects. All techniques will be demonstrated and include hands-on exercises. In addition, concepts will be illustrated and discussed in a slide presentation of works by noted watercolorists.
