“Pink Lady” by Alex Powers

 

Alex Powers

January 19-23, 2015

GCWS Member Rate: $410    Non-member Rate: $445

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.

 

 

Workshop at Gold Coast Watercolor Society

Lecture at Gold Coast Watercolor Society

Alex Powers, author of “Painting People in Watercolor”, “A Design Approach” and many articles. He was most recently featured in January 2014 International Artist magazine.

Jeannie McGuire

February 16-20, 2015

GCWS Member Rate: $410    Non-member Rate: $445

 

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

GCWS Member Rate: $395     Non-member Rate: $430

This four-day workshop offers you the opportunity to work with not one but two National Watercolor Signature Artists. These exceptional artists will work with you in the field of color and how to use it effectively. Once a color concept is in place you find an imaginative and unique painting, which is only a collage away. 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
