Join Averill House Vineyard and Artist Audra in Spring Watercolor Workshop & Wine Tasting: Expressive Watercolors With Flowers.
Saturday May 29th
Cost $30 per person
Supplies and tasting of 4 included in price.
Designed for participants of all levels, fresh flowers will be the inspiration for this workshop. Audra will demonstrate various “fun” exercises geared to interpret flowers in a loose and expressive manner. Demonstrations and individual help will weave throughout the workshop, with an emphasis on letting the medium of watercolor lead the students to new adventures in watercolor. Some goals include “keeping the whites”, avoiding “mud”, intuitive color and composition. Participants will leave with at least one finished watercolor flower painting in this 2 hour painting adventure.
Instructor Audra Saunders:
Audra is not only a successful and accomplished painter; she is also a veteran teacher. She currently is teaching her 16th year of art, photography and design at the high school level. She is intrigued by the transformation of a blank piece of paper into a painted space, and she strives to take the observer to a similar sense of place and feeling. The love of the outdoors is evident in Audra’s paintings.
“I love the qualities of watercolor – its fluid nature. To me, the interaction of an artist with the medium is like a dance – full of motion, feeling, and expression. I love to watch the painting develop and to discover new colors and compositions. As a teacher, I would like to enable students to find their connections with watercolor in new and expressive ways.”
Supplies: Attendees will be provided with supplies. Price includes 2 sheets of 9”x12” watercolor paper.
