A one-day immersive watercolor experience taught by Monica Fogg
Welcome winter with lush color.
The primary purpose of this one day workshop is to explore the richness of fresh, wet watercolor. We will work on skill-building and confidence-in-stroke through demonstrations, exercises and application in a composition. The morning starts with a demonstration, followed by exploratory exercises. After a short lunch break, there will be further demonstration, practice and development of compositions. The secondary purpose is to expand personal creativity and leave limitations behind.
Note from Monica about this class: “I do not try to teach folks to paint ‘like me’…I try to share options and approaches and read their skills to help move them in a direction that either
- adds a little spice to your regular approach or
- bumps you off of stuck or
- just gets you energized to try more after the workshop is over
I will be bringing some fruit-as-subject for those who would like to have a “subject’.”
Bring: picnic lunch (no refrigerator), open mind, a sense of adventure, supplies. Supply list will be sent to registrants and is available in the store.
Prerequisites: NONE. This workshop is very appropriate for first time creators as well as those with previous experience. Each will benefit from individual attention and guidance.

“My personal work is informed and inspired by forms found in nature. I consider and experience the foundations of the earth as symbolic of the ‘grounding’ of spirit. Representation is distilled to form, movement, essence. The process is a dance between concept and emotion.”
