Travel Sketching: A Watercolor Workshop
Instructor: Jean Brinton Jaecks
October 26 and 27; 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
St. John’s College campus
Tuition: $150, includes lunch on both days
Watercolor sketching is an optimum way to see and experience travel and understand the world around us. This workshop will focus on the study of atmosphere in the landscape, architectural details and expressing light in its ever changing moods. Artists will explore and sketch on the St. John’s campus, College Creek, and the historic houses and gardens in Annapolis surrounding the campus. Travel sketching can be very portable, and choosing the correct materials is essential. Lunch will be provided by St. John’s College, and a critique will complete each day. Participants should dress for the outdoors.
Portrait Workshop in the Boathouse
Instructor: Ken Cosgrove
November 16 and 17; 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
This intensive two-day portrait workshop will provide an unusual opportunity to study classic portrait drawing using a theater character (to be determined) in full costume from a local theater company as our model. The workshop will be located in the St. John's Boathouse. The instruction will focus on classic drawing techniques, while encouraging each student to explore their own methods to help express the subject. Emphasis will be placed on anatomy, proportions, and the properties of light and creative expression. A slide presentation and demonstrations will be part of the instruction. Previous portrait experience is helpful but not necessary. Previous drawing experience is a prerequisite.
