Wednesday & Thursday, March 19 & 20, 2025 from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
2-day watercolor workshop fee: $415 / $332 annual donors

Helen will begin this watercolor workshop with an exploration of shape using a collection of variously shaped objects of assorted sizes then applying paint to the paper surface in a somewhat arbitrary manner, paying attention to the use of harmonious and contrasting colors, while getting a feeling for the mood the colors and shapes suggest. This procedure is intrinsic to how she creates an abstract composition.

This kind of subjective painting begins without a conscious plan, allowing the artist’s subconscious reaction to the somewhat haphazard development on the paper to suggest a composition subject or a subject- less composition. Students will be encouraged and assisted throughout the creative process and will participate in a group discussion and critique to finish out the second day.

Students have access to refrigeration if they bring lunch.

The class will meet at 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel.
