This workshop is an introduction to classic watercolor techniques used for botanical subjects such as color mixing, reserving paint and glazing. Participants will work on completing a painting of a beautifully colored and textured houseplant and will learn how they can create their own botanical paintings at home! Join us for an evening workshop designed to help you slow down, look closely, and let your creative juices flow. Ages 8+ welcome. All workshop materials plus an afternoon snack are included in the ticket price.
Suzy Kopf is an artist, art writer, and college professor. She teaches water media, museum studies and professional development for artists at MICA and Johns Hopkins University. As a writer for BmoreArt, she interviews and writes about the contemporary art of Baltimore. She is a multidisciplinary artist who scrutinizes the paper ephemera of midcentury consumer culture to probe the enduring mythos of the American Dream. Conscious of how much byproduct can result from art-production, Suzy strives to have a “no waste” practice, recycling materials back into her work and making her own paint.
Houseplant subjects are on loan from Baltimore small business, Stem & Vine and will be available for purchase following the workshop. Take your new green friend/art model home with you!
