Studio Watercolor and The Business of Art
Second Session – Advanced
This workshop features extensive studio time for painting each day along with individual consultations with the instructor. The painting sessions will be supplemented by informal group discussions on relevant aesthetic and business issues such as how art communicates, obtaining gallery representation and resume building. This class is designed for the aspiring professional watermedia painter who is already working on an advanced level and is capable of working independently. The emphasis is on personal growth and expression, as such there will be no group technical demonstrations, however discussion of technique will be part of each individual’s consultation when appropriate.
