Watercolor from A-Z with Sterling Edwards

October 25 @ 9:30 am - October 28 @ 3:30 pm

Members: $ 495.00, Non-Members: $ 620.00

There will be a wide variety of watercolor techniques that will be discussed and demonstrated including positive and negative painting, composition, using creative colors, glazing, charging color, and many more. We will begin each day with a demonstration painting that will be finished before lunch. The daily demonstration will be different each day so that you will see a wide variety of subject matter and styles including landscapes, floral, stylized, and abstract. My preferred method of painting is to use large brushes for most of the painting and complete the painting with a small amount of details towards the end using smaller brushes. The end result is a watercolor painting that is loose and fresh with expressive brushwork. Following lunch each student will have the afternoon to work on their own painting with assistance when needed. There are no requirements as to what subject the student paints or what size they prefer to paint.

October 25th Developing Your Own Still Life Composition
This innovative online class will focus on drawing a still life at home from observation. To begin, the class will discuss and focus on the experience of creating a qualitative composition by setting up a still life. Then, each student will arrange a still life of objects in front them and follow teacher lead instruction on how to pick a focal point and develop an exciting composition, along with accurately recreating the objects. As a class, we will address the importance of the art elements value and texture. Being able to recreate different types of surfaces can really enhance an artwork. Although this class will utilize pencil as the medium, the content knowledge of the class is directly applicable to all painting and drawing media. This class can be accomplished with literally one pencil, eraser, and paper. However, the ideal essential materials are a variety of Pencils, HB-6B, erasers, and sketch pad (approximately 11” x 14”) and still life objects.

Lesson: 11/12 Online Expressionism and Fruit
Are you looking to further your oil or acrylic painting ability? Then this is the online painting class for you! As a long time, professional painter and fine art educator, David holds a plentiful amount of experience in producing and teaching various styles of painting. Regardless of your amount of experience, desired painting style, or subject preference, this class will assist in your growth as a painter and an artist.
The class will begin with an introduction and a brief Power Point. Ultimately, this class will guide you step by step through the stages of developing a contemporary fruit still life painting. Painting fruit with an expressive approach can really benefit an artist in learning about unique process and application. Along with color mixing, one goal of instruction will address the importance of creating a sketch and dynamic composition in paint. Given the time limit and the nature of the class, we will primarily be working in “Alla Prima.” This term literally means working wet on wet. Finally, instruction will cover the various layers of “building up” a painting to reach the end goal. Recommended canvas size should be around 9” x 12” up to 16” x 20.”

Lesson: 11/21 OCAL Painting Architecture
Are you looking to further your oil or acrylic painting ability? Then this is the online painting class for you! As a long time, professional painter and fine art educator, David holds a plentiful amount of experience in producing and teaching various styles of painting. Regardless of your amount of experience, desired painting style, or subject preference, this class will assist in your growth as a painter and an artist.
This in person class will begin with an introduction and a brief Power Point. Ultimately, this class will guide you step by step through the stages of developing a painting. The primary subject will be architecture. Painting architecture can be challenging. However, it can greatly assist an artist in learning about process and application. Along with color mixing, one goal of instruction will address the importance of creating a sketch and dynamic composition in paint. Given the time limit and the nature of the class, we will primarily be working in “Alla Prima.” This term literally means working wet on wet. Finally, instruction will cover the various layers of “building up” a painting to reach the end goal. Recommended canvas size should be around 9” x 12” up to 16” x 20.”

In-Person: 4-Day Watercolor Impressions: Flowers, Faces and Figures with Janet Rogers

Cost: $425 Members, $530 Non-Members, plus $10 model and flower fee, which will be collected first day of workshop
Please register by 04/04/2021!

Fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this dynamic workshop – progressing to the head and figure. Through a series of fun painting exercises, students will develop a more loose and natural approach – giving them an opportunity to be more spontaneous and expressive in their paintings. In our approach to learning how to interpret the head and figure, we will learn to express translucent flesh tones, while focusing on the gesture of the person. Painting children will also be covered. Although we will work primarily from photos, we may have an opportunity to work from a model for a short period, so bring your
camera! Besides class demonstrations throughout the workshop, Janet will work individually with each person also, making sure they understand the painting concepts – a truly “hands on” experience. Focusing on discovering how to control and making dynamic color, design and expression, we will also have “Show and Tell” – an opportunity to share and see how we exceed in our expectations!!!
