Turning Photos into Drawings and Watercolor Paintings with Christine Mix
Saturday, April 15, 2017  10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Learn how to turn your favorite photos into your own drawings and/or watercolor paintings using the old masters’ grid method. Bring a color or black-and-white copy of your favorite photo or artwork (no originals because we will be drawing on them) and learn how to reduce or enlarge the image onto watercolor paper or watercolor board using a simple scale ruler and pencil. Once the image has been drawn and transferred, you’ll be able to paint or color it as you like. All levels are welcome. A materials list will be provided at registration.

Photographic Composition
with Stephen Whitaker 
Saturday, June 10, 2017  1:00 - 8:00 p.m.
and Sunday, June 11, 2017  5:30 a.m. - noon

In this two-day workshop, we will explore the principles of composition, the concept of “visual weight,” how to choose what to include and omit, and how to use texture, shape, form, color and quality of light to create beautiful images that you will be thrilled to share no matter what kind of camera you use. We will spend a mix of time in the classroom and in the field, shooting around sunset and sunrise to get great quality of light—and finishing in time for a much-needed nap on Sunday! All levels are welcome, and we will work with whatever camera you have.
