Watercolor Workshop w/Sterling Edwards
Oct 31 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Class Description: Whether a beginning watercolor artist or an experienced painter you’ll find the watercolor workshops with Sterling Edwards to be informative, inspirational and fun. Having studied and taught watercolors for over twenty years, Sterling has developed a style of painting that is uniquely his. Using primarily large brushes and transparent watercolor, he incorporates mood, light, and a sense of place in his paintings. Combine this with a multitude of subjects and techniques and you have a workshop where everyone, regardless of their individual experience, will gain new insight about this wonderful medium called watercolor. But Sterling goes beyond merely teaching technique. Color theory, design and composition, saving white paper, and building rich values are just a few of the topics that are covered in depth at every workshop.

Each morning of the workshop Sterling will paint a complete watercolor painting. The subject of the painting will vary day by day so that each student has an opportunity to see a wide variety of subjects and styles. As he paints, Sterling explains each step of the process and encourages questions. The demonstration paintings are finished before lunch so that everyone has the afternoon to work on their own paintings. Each student may paint whatever they wish while Sterling is available to assist when needed. Sometimes he will do a small and brief afternoon demo of a specific subject when everyone is ready to take a break from painting. Come prepared to have fun, learn, and, make new friends. Examples of Sterling’s paintings, his biography, and workshop schedule can be found on his web site; www.sterlingedwards.com

Oil Painting
Nov 1 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Class Description: Oil paints are lustrous and sumptuous, the gold standard of mediums throughout the history of art. They can also be intimidating, with their many pigments, oils, varnishes, turpentine and brushes. This beginner’s class breaks down the fundamentals of oil painting into manageable blocks. This is an exciting class for me to teach; there is a tremendous learning curve. We will cover: composition, paint mixing, drawing with paint, values (light/dark), and color theory. No previous art classes are required. Receive individual attention at every step along the way. Working from still lifes or from your own individual photos, students will create accomplished and beautiful canvases to treasure for years ahead. Materials are not included; a materials list will be provided. – See more at: http://jacksonvillecenter.org/classes/11-november/oil-painting-twd110114/#sthash.ZsB4r1No.dpuf
