Combining Camaraderie with Creativity
Pam Roland writes: Amy is doing a watercolor workshop spotlighting the QoR Watercolors, recently released by Golden Williamsburg. They are called “Modern” watercolors. Check out this site: https://www.qorcolors.com/ I’ve attended SEVERAL workshops with Amy and am always impressed by not only how much she knows but also by how well she teachers. Even if you’ve been using watercolors for years, I BET you’ll learn things! Please follow this link for details. http://www.artboxvirginia.com/classes.html

My Newest 2018 Intermediate and Advanced Watercolor Course!
This fall, winter, & spring, I am introducing two new courses aimed at helping folks who want to move beyond the basic level of knowledge and experience in watercolor. The first of the new special courses is “Intermediate and Advanced Watercolor Projects”.
Each time I offer this course, we will concentrate on two major ideas and explore them in depth. For this Fall session, we will first explore the power of the silhouette and negative space; then move on to the liberating freshness and freedom of direct painting. I think both of these concepts will bring a new or renewed excitement to your painting process. To be very sure that everyone gets as much attention as they need with these challenging concepts, I will be limiting the class size to no more than a maximum of eight students.
