Using the basic approaches to watercolor painting as a springboard, students will enjoy exploring both innovative and traditional watercolor approaches that will further develop and enhance their own personal style of painting.
During this four-day workshop, Graff will provide a series of exercises, lectures, and demonstrations that will enable each student to fully understand different approaches on how to develop a painting. The different watercolor concepts introduced will enlighten both the traditional and contemporary watercolor artists.
This promises to be an exciting, informative and unique event. Registrations are now being accepted. Join us for a wonderful week painting with Fred. You will love his website!www.fredgraff.com
