    IN PERSON - Intro to Urban Watercolor Sketching

    Ed Pettitt
    Four Friday afternoons,  
    June 4, 11, 18, 25.
    1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
    $180 members/$220 non-members

    Urban sketching is a form of reportage: drawings or paintings created on-site, as a spontaneous response to people, places or incidents. It is the act of placing oneself in a space, attempting to capture and interpret a particular moment in time. Though one can use any medium for urban sketching, pencil and ink drawings colored with watercolor are most common. In this class, we will discuss the history and methodology of urban watercolor sketching, examine different approaches and styles (such as postcard sketching, travel sketching, reportage sketching, mixed media, and Japanese etegami) and create our own urban watercolor sketches!

    Sometimes the sky is the background that sets the mood for your landscape and sometimes it is the focal point of your painting. Either way, getting it right can take practice! In this two day workshop we will learn ways to produce stunning skies from calm to dramatic. I will do a number of demos and paint- alongs, so you will need some scrap paper to practice on.

    $150 members/$170 non-members

    We hear the phrase “negative Painting” understanding that it is the painted area AROUND our subject matter. But it is so much more than that! A skilled watercolorist will use this trick with any subject, even when it doesn’t seem obvious in the photo reference. It can add texture, nuance and sophistication to any painting, connecting subject and background - a very handy technique for every artist. We will do some paint along exercises and then work from your personal photos with individual instruction.

    IN PERSON - From Sketchbook to Gallery

    Ed Pettitt
    Four Friday afternoons,  
    July 2, 9. 16, 23.

    1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
    $120 members/$160 non-members

    Whether you use your sketchbook for urban sketching, nature sketching, brainstorming, or doodling, this class will help you turn those sketches into gallery-quality paintings! This class is for all abilities - the objective is to advance you to YOUR highest potential, not anyone else's. If you're like me, you may look at your just-completed drawing or painting and have the nagging feeling it just isn’t right or that it's not as well-composed or balanced as it could be, but you're not sure what would make it better. This class will give you the tools to identify what's "off" in your sketches and how to make them better, as well as how to make strong drawings/paintings from the beginning. We will cover design dynamics, visual composition and balance, tonal value and contrast, color theory and mixing, as well as tips for still lifes, landscapes, and portraits. We will also go over the steps you need to take to submit your completed paintings to WASH and other gallery shows, as well as how to price and market your work.

    Urban paintings have so much detail to consider – people, traffic, lights, signs, windows. You have mastered the perspective and the sense of space in your paintings, but still need help getting the details right, like the “jewelry” or “sparkle” to finish your painting. Learn ways to push detail back, and pull it into focus so that you can use your photos and make truly unique paintings. We will do group paint-alongs to get your skills honed and then work one-on-one as time allows on individual projects.

    Maps are all around us, from our GPS to the blueprint of our homes to the mental maps that guide us through the obstacle course of life. Maps orient us, guide us, and inform us, and they can tell a rich story of people, place, and culture. In this class, we will explore different kinds of representational and metaphorical maps as well as their components, including cartouche, compass rose, legend, symbols, and more. We will practice sketching and adding watercolor to a variety of maps and students will gain an appreciation for mapmaking as a tool for urban sketching, personal reflection, ethnographic study, and decorative illustration. No mapmaking experience is needed and all levels of artists are welcome, including first-time beginners!

    10:00 a.m. - 1 p.m.

    $120 members/$150 non-members

    Gouache is an interesting medium, in that fluid transparent watercolor-like washes can be administered, as well as thicker opaque renderings resembling oil or acrylics. In this course we will combine these qualities to explore the figure in context.

    We will begin with a warm-up, and familiarize ourselves with brush techniques and effects while painting a sphere in the practice of chiaroscuro. Then we will apply the process to model the figure and surroundings, creating an energy-rich integration of form, light, and atmospheric perspective.

    IN PERSON - Watercolor Batik

    With the use of Japanese rice paper, watercolors, and hot wax comes a freedom of expression and a textural depth that surprises. While most painting is additive (bringing the scene to view from white paper), this method is subtractive with the wax covering the chosen area. Removal of the wax then reveals an intriguing piece that can be displayed showing the back or front.

    All Levels.

    Kim Minichiello Bold and Dynamic Watercolor Workshop 

    October 4-6, 2021

    Go beyond what many consider to be traditional watercolor techniques by using bold color, interesting compositions, and unique subject matter. Kim will show you her approach to designing a painting for a more dynamic composition, and how to get values to read giving your 2-dimensional work more 3-dimensionality. This workshop will also cover the many nuances and differences in papers, types of brushes and pigments. Learn how to mix grays and neutralize colors, as well as the secret to successful watercolor painting, by understanding pigment to water ratios and viscosity.

    In this workshop you will be working on two 12” x 12” paintings,  a yellow bromeliad and the water lilies.  With these works Kim will emphasize the importance of working with color temperature and how she utilizes this property of color in her work. 

    Skill level: Beginner to intermediate.

    Kim Minichiello: Achieving Textural Effects In Watercolor Workshop 

    October 7-8, 2021

    As a former Walt Disney Imagineer, working on the design of Disney Theme Parks worldwide, to tell a particular story, Kim had to make the new look old.  She carried that same love of vintage time worn objects telling stories through my artwork.  Join her as she shares her techniques for achieving texture in watercolor. For an oil or acrylic painter, texture can be achieved by applying thick paint in an impasto manner.  In watercolor, texture must be achieved to look three dimensional on a two dimensional surface.  In this workshop we will work on a number of technques to achieve texture in your work and then will paint a rusty, vintage gate.   She’ll share a variety of techniques that she uses in my work to give passages in watercolor interesting variety, as well as, imply texture on worn and aged surfaces.
