Chris demonstrating for students

ARTWORKS around town is very happy to announce that artist Chris Leeper will be presenting a 2 day watercolor workshop at ARTWORKS on November 4th and 5th.  Chris is our guest artist in the studio gallery for the month of November.  The workshop is from 10 to 4 both days.  The fee for the workshop is $200.  Check out Chris’ artwork at christopherleeper.com.  The workshop is limited to 12 participants so sign up quickly.  You can sign up at ARTWORKS or contact Greg Siegwart at art_and_design_studio@hotmail.com

Chris teaches with a fun and relaxed style.  Each day there will be demonstrations and lots of one-on-one instruction.  This workshop will focus on the process of creating a watercolor painting.  He will speak in-depth about devising a plan for success with your painting; the importance of drawing, design and brushwork; simplifying and improving color mixing (no more muddy watercolors) and how to get dynamic value relationships.

A teaching moment

Topics will include:

Technique fundamentals (Things I wish I knew 25 years ago)

The first half-hour of a painting (Make it or break it)

Values (Why value is more important than color in your painting)

Understanding basic color theory to improve color mixing (Spend more time painting and less time mixing colors)

Understanding color temperature, intensity and value (The key to becoming a color master)

Composition (If it feels right, it probably is right)
