Stepping Back to See : A Watercolor Workshop given by Joel Janowitz, painter and printmaker
At its best, to paint with watercolors is to engage in a conversation with the medium. More often it is, as Sargent said, "making the best of an emergency." In either instance, a good conversation or a dire emergency, one needs to think clearly and respond immediately. This workshop will explore strategies for working with the surprising medium of watercolor. Progressive exercises and projects will focus on a variety of working methods and on increasing one’s awareness of color and value relationships — two key factors in capturing a convincing sense of light. At the same time, we will stay open to responding playfully, quickly, and spontaneously to the quirky surprises constantly offered up by the medium. Work will be primarily from observation.
The workshop will take place from May 14-17 on Rocky Neck and is divided into two sections:
- SECTION ONE : Monday, May 14 and Wednesday, May 16 : 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Limited to 8 participants. Artists will bring back their work for a group crit/discussion to the 2nd meeting at 9 a.m. and then paint again from 10am to 1pm.
- SECTION TWO : Tuesday May 15, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This section could meet at the end of the day if it would better accommodate those coming from work. Limited to 8 participants.
- STUDIO VISITS : Joel will give 6 studio visits. Artists not taking the workshops will have first choice for these conversations with Joel Janowitz about their work.
PRICE : RNAC members, $25 per section. Non RNAC are $50 per section. You are welcome to become a RNAC member to sign up for this course. Two scholarships are available.
For registration, schedule, materials list and location* of classes or any questions please e-mail:RGlouc@comcast.net
