Upcoming Workshops

Special workshop

Exploring the Magic of Watercolor
with Mick McAndrews Workshop

Date : May 21-24, 2018

Time : 10am-4pm on Mon Tue Wed Th

Level : Intermediate/Advanced

Fee: $525 for non-members; $485 for members

During this watercolor workshop we will paint a variety of subjects with a focus on working with plenty of water and pigment to exploit the wonder and intrinsic beauty of the medium. We will avoid the pitfalls of noodling with fussy details and instead focus on the key elements in all painterly two dimensional works of art: interesting shapes, value contrast and variety of edges. We will discuss the importance of good drawing skills, basic color theory, perspective, and the elements and principles of design. With this knowledge we will explore and experience the “magic” of watercolor.

Instructor Mick McAndrews is an award-winning watercolorist, a signature member of the Philadelphia Watercolor Society as well as a member of the Pennsylvania and Baltimore Watercolor Societies. His award winning paintings strive to capture the mood and atmosphere of a subject, combining the magic of watercolor with reverence for the principles of design to create works of sophisticated simplicity.

You can find out more about Mick McAndrews at his website: www.mickmcandrewsfineart.com.

Space is limited! So sign up today!
