A Bold Approach to Water-Based-Mediums


Antonio Masi is president of the American Watercolor Society and an International renowned painter.  The goal of this workshop is to show the untapped power of water-based mediums. The focus will be on how to approach the mediums from a contemporary point of view, powerful, emotional and delicate. Learn how attention to details and unusual perspective make for poetic, moody works, with strong textural qualities.

Students are encouraged to find their own inner voice in painting.

Join Steve Rogers  as we discover the pure Joy of painting intuitive Abstract Painting with Fluid Acrylics , Watercolor Pencils and Crayons.  Letting go and realizing that there are no rules, depending entirely on understanding Design and Color Theory.  All of which will be thoroughly explained and illustrated.  Then the fun begins.  Lots of intuitive painting time with help finding your direction and finally what it takes to pull an Abstract together. http://www.watercolorsbyrogers.com/
