Painting Stems and Leaves in Watercolor
January 10-11, 2013
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Stems are not boring. Stems are not just something that connects flowers and leaves. Stems can become the compelling focal point of a composition when they are arranged effectively and deliberately.
During this two-day workshop, Heeyoung will assist students with the coloring process step-by-step through demonstrations and individualized instruction. Students are expected to select their own specimens (Heeyoung will use an oak branch with some leaves), and prepare a drawing before the watercolor workshop begins so they can focus on watercolor techniques during the two-day workshop. This class will be held at Brushwood Gallery, Ryerson Wood, 21850 N Riverwoods Road, Deerfield, IL 60015.
Optional Drawing Class
Friday, January 4, 2013 (10 AM – 1 PM)
Extra Fee: $40
Location: Ryerson Woods
Registrants who want to spend some extra time to ensure their drawings will be suitable for the watercolor workshop can take this optional drawing class with Heeyoung. This class will be taught one week before the watercolor workshop so students can have enough time to fully prepare their drawings and trace them onto watercolor paper for the workshop. If you want to participate in the drawing session, please contact Heeyoung as soon as possible.
