Location: Ah Haa Arts School
To become an artist one must learn how to “see” - how to interpret the world around you and filter it using your own unique vision and expression. In this workshop students will learn how to converse in color and form using a variety of artistic media: watercolors, pastels, collage, printmaking, drawing and journaling. Contemporary and familiar artists as well as composition, intent, and color will be discussed to expand and define personal style. Open to students of all levels, the workshop will use the synergy of thegroup combined with the delight of visual exploration to provide the foundation for your artistic journey. Size is limited to ensure that every participant has ample one-on-one instruction. Materials: Call for supply list. About Susan X. Billings: Susan X.
