"Fiber Arts Workshop with Katie Pasquini Masopust"
May 21-25, 2018
 

Katie is a very popular teacher who presents her unique contemporary quilting theories and techniques in workshops worldwide. In this workshop, you'll explore the creative possibilities of working in a series. Participants bring a couple of pieces to the workshop from which to build a series of additional works. We will first evaluate the pieces made in advance and discuss their potential for development into a series. Participants then form a plan of their own considering color, composition, and elements of design, such as contrasts of size, contrast of temperature, contrast of values, engaging the edge, negative space, etc. Each piece in your series builds on the previous one.

"Charles Reid Watercolor Workshop"
May 28 - June 1, 2018
 

Learning to simplify and avoid overworking are the goals of the class. Charles will demonstrate drawing and painting each morning, and the class will paint in the afternoon while he circulates the room with his experienced eye. Subjects will include still life, live model, and working from photos. Charles will help you concentrate on interconnecting shapes rather than on individual isolated objects as well as "Direct Painting” using as few over-washes as possible. The object is to be able to achieve the correct color, edge variety, and tonal value without the overworked dead feeling. It’s strongly advised that each student review two of his books (prior to the workshop): “Charles Reid’s Watercolor Secrets” and “Charles Reid’s Watercolor Solutions”.
