First Session – Advanced
This master class is designed for accomplished, self-motivated artists who are interested in expanding their thinking about watermedia as an aesthetic enterprise. Participants may work in any watermedia desired. Individual critiques will be scheduled to discuss not only the paintings done in class but also to review the participant’s previous work. To this end, each participant is asked to bring representative samples of their art in the form of slides, digital photos, or if convenient, one or two actual paintings. Individual critiques will involve discussions about artistic options, personal goals, aesthetic concerns and art thinking.
