SPRING 2020 WORKSHOPS

 
Color Field Painting
with Watercolor
 
Gage Academy
Saturday and Sunday, May 9-10
9:30 am to 4:30 pm
 

Level: Intermediate
In this workshop, we will focus on color as the primary element in abstract expression. Using examples of prominent color field painters from the mid 20th Century to the present, we will examine the use of color in terms of its emotional and spiritual content. We will also look at the relationship between color and music, and how both resonate with us on a personal level. Exercises will include color experimentation using variations in scale, value, hue, saturation, and temperature.

Abstract Composition
in Watercolor

Gage Academy
Saturday and Sunday, May 30-31 (rescheduled)
9:30 am to 4:30 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 concepts of balance and contrast, using value, scale, color, texture, transparency and edges as variables. Then, through observation and critique, we will examine ways to solve compositional problems.
