Join me for this popular exploration into simple artist bookmaking.
 
Fun for all levels, however it will help to have some painting experience. Participants will start with exercises in color and texture; and then will incorporate these techniques into abstract watercolor paintings. The finished paintings will be accordion folded and bound into small books with a choice of cover options. These books make exceptional gifts!

The Emotional, Psychological and Spiritual Content of Color in Abstraction
 

Saturday and Sunday, March 17th and 18th
9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Gage Academy of Art

In this two-day intensive, we will focus on color as the primary element in abstract expression using watercolor. 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, psychological 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 form, harmony, contrast, balance, repetition, and juxtaposition. Some experience with watercolor or other water media is required. All paper will be supplied. A $20 supply fee will be collected in class.

Cost: $215 • Click here to register.
