PM Atelier: Dry Brush Watercolor

February 28, 2018 6:00pm – 8:30pm

Dry Brush Watercolor: Don Nice’s Double Predella

Wednesday, February 28, 6:00-8:30 PM
Ederic Seminar Room 102, Gund Gallery

Seats are limited to 15 participants. Registration will open Friday before the session at noon.  A link to register will be provided on this page.

Watercolor is an incredibly fluid and versatile painting medium. With ancient origins, the contemporary process relies on water-soluble pigment and absorbent paper. After examining Double Predella by Don Nice, participants will explore color layering using a dry brush technique.

About the PM Atelier Workshop Series:

PM Atelier is a series of hand-on workshops that introduce participants to a range of traditional artist techniques and processes. Every semester we focus on a different theme connected to our current exhibitions or collection works. Our focus for spring of 2018 is water media techniques represented in the Gund Gallery Collection.  Participants have the option of copying works from our collection or exploring the technique with original subject matter. Registration is required and limited to 15 per session.
