Workshops with Jeannie McGuire, the 2011 American Watercolor Society's Gold Medal Winner, will encourage and challenge artists to communicate a story or feeling in their paintings and create strong figurative works of art in watercolor. Referencing a variety of photographs and snapshots, students will focus on emotion and movement; intertwining figurative subjects with their background; seeing natural design in reference materials; exploring the impact of cropping and the placement of contrast; and most importantly, a purpose for creating art. Through demonstrations, candid conversation, and individual time, Jeannie shares her painting style and thoughts as well as the versatility of watercolor when employing a higher ratio of pigment to water.
