Johnson-Nechtman Workshop Materials

Get loose, go outside the lines, and be unafraid of your watercolors!  During this five-week course, Kim will guide students through three different approaches to an animal subject – a very direct painting approach, a wet-into-wet approach, and a unique “throwing paint” approach. Students will let their fears evaporate, learning instead to relax and open up their creativity and imaginations.  Students will continue to explore additional techniques around the making of shapes, using color combinations, simultaneously designing foreground and background, and taking advantage of soft and hard edges. Students will gain confidence in reaching the point where they realize their painting is done.
