Instructor: Cat Bennett

Description:

Drawing with shapes is a way to simplify and clarify our work and make it bold. Even subtle, sensitive work is bold when it has clarity. Drawing with shapes helps us see more clearly and define what it is in what we see that we want to impart. When we look at nature, people or objects there is a plethora of information. We can’t possibly draw every leaf on a tree or every hair on a person’s head but using bold shapes helps us give the impression that we are sharing fully what we see and feel.

We’ll use opaque watercolor paint and pencil to render what we see by beginning with shapes. The techniques we explore here can be brought forward into landscape, still life and portrait painting. Even abstract work!

For inspiration, we’ll look at work by Alex Katz, Milton Avery, and Gauguin.

Each participant will get a full set of Pelikan opaque watercolors, a
special brush and a Flexi sketchbook to take home. And a printout from the instructor outlining what we have done.

Materials Included!

Paper
Colored Pencils Crayons
Paint
Brushes

You need only bring yourself, your open mind and good energy! There will be a mid-afternoon tea break.
