 Class Description:

6/13 - PART ONE - Color Theory

6/20 - PART TWO - Brushwork and Textural Effects

6/27 - PART THREE - Washes and Glazing 

Explore the art of watercolor and learn new techniques in this class for beginner and intermediate-level painters.

Practice watercolor techniques as you explore the unique properties of the medium in this three-part workshop series - take them as a series or stand alone workshops! In workshop one, we will cover color mixing, interactions between colors, and how artists use color for storytelling and mood.

Students will create their own unique color palettes to be used as a resource for a painting project of their choice.

Workshop two will include a hands-on study of the array of possible mark making available to us with different watercolor brush shapes and varying amounts of water, and additional non-brush techniques for introducing texture.

Students will then choose three or more of these techniques to apply to painting a still-life arrangement.

In workshop three, we will discuss flat and graduated washes and the possibilities of watercolor as a translucent medium for slowly building up rich and varied color. Students will then apply the discussed approaches to either a landscape or portrait. 

At the end of the class an exhibition with the students ‘artwork will be held at the Book Hill Georgetown library.

Bio: 

Etai Rogers-Fett is a local printmaker and arts-educator, with over ten years of teaching experience in youth and adult arts education. Etai is a current printshop artistic associate at Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center in Hyattsville and a teaching artist at Create Arts Center in Silver Spring. In his etchings, Etai draws inspiration from Jewish craft traditions of papercutting, manuscript illumination, and calligraphy to create compositions that blend decorative and narrative imagery and explore the expressive potential of Hebrew and Yiddish typography. Etai plays with the genres of Jewish book arts in order to think about how we tell and transmit stories, often weaving together archival research, folktales, oral histories, and speculative imagining.
