Intro to Watercolor Workshop offered in Provence in 2021!
In 2021 we will offer an Absolute Beginner Watercolor Workshop in beautiful Provence. Our instructor, John Keeling, will tailor this workshop towards those students who have never painted before. John is an award-winning artist who has had a successful career as a Creative Director with Hallmark Cards and now splits his time between teaching watercolor to all ages and creating commissioned pet portraits. His teaching style is very hands on with a lot of one-on-one feedback and instruction.
The medium of watercolor allows for very few corrections – and by learning the basic techniques early on, students will be able to eliminate making a lot of the mistakes that beginners usually makes. You will be watching demonstrations, practicing what you have learned on location in the small villages in the Luberon region of Provence, listening to in-depth technique classes and enjoying the camaraderie with fellow beginner painters!
John visited this beautiful part of France for the first time in 2019, immediately fell in love with the place and is now excited to be returning and sharing his love of Provence with fellow painters!
The group will visit the picturesque Provence villages of l’Isle sur la Sorgue, a mecca for antique lovers, Peter Mayle’s Lourmarin, the artist heaven of Gordes, the SCAD campus located in Lacoste, and the russet red village of Roussillon.
This class will take place in May of 2021.
Details will be announced in February of 2020.
