Watercolor Batik
Aug 1 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Class Description: Bonnie’s technique of batik is a process of layers of watercolor paint and paraffin wax on Ginwashi rice paper, which is fun and challenging. She will reach you the process step by step and as the layers of wax and color builds it becomes more difficult to see the image and colors, but you will be completely surprised at how great your painting looks at the end! – See more at: http://jacksonvillecenter.org/classes/08-august/watercolor-batik-twd080114-b/#sthash.W0nztT7H.dpuf

Watercolor Plein Air and Studio Workshop
Aug 1 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Class Description: Back by popular demand at The Jax, join Tom for this special three day workshop where you’ll paint plein air for at least one day and in the studio as well. He will teach an easy process of how to create an award winning landscape watercolor painting using the power of back lighting with a beautiful sunset. His method will also help you to loosen up your painting style for your paintings to have that wonderful lost and found look of an impressionist painting. Tom’s teaching philosophy – It’s not Tom’s goal to change ones painting style, but rather to give them as many new ideas to enhance their current painting styles as possible. Tom’s approach to teaching is to give the student as much information s and many new ideas as he can fit into the schedule and hold nothing back. He believes that workshops are a serious learning place, but at the same time should be fun and entertaining. In his class he gives students as much one-on-one guidance as possible, giving only positive critiques. Tom encourages students to take notes and bring cameras to photograph his teaching aids, paintings and demos. At the end of each class, above all, he wants to make sure the students leave saying “WOW, that was great! – See more at: http://jacksonvillecenter.org/classes/08-august/watercolor-plein-air-and-studio-workshop-twd080114-a/#sthash.IoVMBC2Y.dpuf
