Liquid State: Painting Water
Water has been a source of fascination for artists throughout history.
This two day acrylic workshop will focus on investigating, interpreting and responding through paint, the water that surrounds us by focusing on its unique properties. Water presents the painter with a number of challenges due to its ever-fickle nature. Class will begin with a presentation, a visit to the GAAA Gallery for inspiration from the “Water, the Exhibition,” and then into the classroom or lakeshore where students will begin their own artistic inquiries.
