"Bigger, Faster, Fresher, Looser Abstract Painting"
August 23-25, 2019

Have you ever wondered how to Loosen-Up your painting style? Paint with more Freedom? Be more Spontaneous? Be more Expressive? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then my Bigger, Faster, Fresher, Looser Abstract Painting Workshop is for you! I will teach you how to do each of these realizing there should also be a firm foundation of structure for your paintings using shape, value, color, edges and center of interest. This workshop is also about learning to loosen-up and paint more freely. All who attend will be able to apply the lessons learned to their own style of painting. This workshop is non media specific. All who utilize watercolor, acrylic, and oil are welcome.

"Watercolor Painting"

The workshop sessions begin as Couch completes a painting, explaining what he is doing, and why, as he paints. Students paint in the afternoons, after which Couch critiques all the day’s completed work, including his own. Skill Level: Beginners, Students, Hobbyists and Professional Artists. Couch received a Bachelor Degree in Art from the University of Tampa, and did further work at Pratt Institute in New York. His first book, Watercolor: You Can Do It, became North Light Publishing's all time best selling book on painting. A follow-up book on technique went through three printings and was translated into Japanese for that market. A third, Tony Couch’s Keys to Successful Painting was also published by North Light.

"Art Journaling: Visual Storytelling"
February 7-8, 2020

Explore the many different sides of art journals from getting past the blank pages to tips and techniques in capturing your words and imagery. An art journal is a combination of visual and written imagery that captures thoughts, ideas and images in a visual way – travel logs, dream diaries, art techniques, therapy logs, storybooks, or anything – from using mixed media, collage, paint, pen and charcoal. Wood has been creating art ever since she can remember. She has a bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering, but after working for a few years, decided to go back to college and take art classes.
