On Thursday evening, Oct. 20th at 7 PM, we will have the pleasure of having Board Member Anita Lovitt demonstrate a technique she is exploring with masking fluid. Anita has been teaching classes in watercolor at the Armory Art Center. She also instructs small painting groups in private homes.

 

 

Ms. Lovitt worked in New York City for many years as an illustrator before deciding to concentrate on painting. A highlight of that period was working at the New York Shakespeare Festival, which sparked an interest in set design. That knowledge came in handy when she created the huge “Dancing Pineapples” Art in Public Places mural in downtown Delray Beach.

Design and Personal Style

This workshop is more about personal painting style and design than it is about technique and subject matter. The workshop will include demonstration, PowerPoint lectures, design lecture with illustrations and private consultations of work from home. You will receive individual critiques along with being involved in group critiques. This class is appropriate for advanced-beginners to advanced artists. There is no wrong style of painting; this class will focus on finding the correct style for you. You will work hard but have fun doing it.

Figurative Design Watercolor Workshop

In this workshop, Jeannie will share many aspects of her art through versatile projects and extended experimentation. As a student you are encouraged to be inspired by the instructor’s style rather than copy it; to find your own unique signature/style or improve upon your drawing and painting skills; discover the freedom of intuitive painting and go beyond illustration and create paintings worthy of exhibition. Students will explore the interplay between the figurative subject(s) and their backgrounds, natural design in reference materials, cropping impact, pigment maintenance, using a higher ration of pigment to water, intentional and spontaneous marks and the freedom to change one’s mind. Artists receive plenty of personal attention and painting time.  Jeannie is the winner of the 2011 Gold Medal of Honor from the American Watercolor Society.  www.jeanniemcguire.com

Nancy and Susan working hand in hand will share with you avenues in which to take your art to a new level. You will reap the benefits of two sisters who have encouraged and supported each other on their artistic journey. This workshop is for Intermediate to Advanced students to grow in a direction that suits them individually.  www.nancyfrostbegin.net  www.susanhanssen.com

Anne tells The Rickie Report, “There is a saying – “Value tells the story, but color gets the credit.” I believe this to be true. Vivid colors are the first thing that attracts me and the viewer; color is the emotion and as important as the composition. I work in watercolors because they can reflect the wonderful quality of light and transparency.”
