Mary Ann Beckwith
Brush and Beyond
This workshop will be an art altering experience! The energy filled days will explore creative methods of watermedia application, including texturing and the building of layers of paint. Exposure to new techniques and materials will allow the student to better express their visions and ideas through their paintings. This workshop is suitable for both representational and abstract imagery. Demonstrations and discussions will encompass and focus on composition and design, ways to recharge your work, sources of inspiration and the business of being an artist. Each day will allow plenty of painting time and optional critiques. The workshop promises to be lively, energetic and best of all fun filled.
