Treated Paper Watercolor Workshop

Treated paper watercolor workshop with Kay Barnes

September 11,12,13, 10:00am-4:00pm

First Christian Church, Olympia, Washington


This workshop is one of Kay’s most requested workshops ever! This Treated Paper workshop is a very unique experience in working with transparent watercolor. The surface of hot pressed paper is coated with acrylic medium and then watercolor applied loosely and abstractly. The outcome is a mystery all the way through the process. Words like intriguing and amazing come to mind as we watch the magic unfold. The workshop
will begin with a great lesson in design and include daily critiques to guide the student through this fascinating process. Learning to let go and let the medium of watercolor
take over is part of the benefit of this workshop. The stand back in awe principal is definitely at work here. You may work out design problems, create fabulous textures, rework areas and lift out paint as much as your painting requires with out the usual
problems we might have in more traditional approaches. You may create a very loose and abstract painting or work with it to bring your piece closer to realism. We will explore rocks and waterfalls, brilliant florals using this unusual and exciting technique. This is a fast and fun adventure in painting!! Cost is $275.00 for all three days. (Bring a lunch or snack each day-once registered, we will provide a supply list) Class size is limited. Sign up soon!
