Sue Archer
Medium: Watercolor
Title: Watercolor Magic

Description: “My goal as an instructor is to present you with as much design and color theory information as time allows and encourage you to take advantage of the inherent wet into wet qualities of watercolor. I believe in the power of planning and understanding the basics. The objective is not to change you, but to add to your core of knowledge. Then it is up to you to take this knowledge and apply it to the style and subject matter that suits you.”

This workshop is designed to inspire your creativity: by learning to “see” and experience some of the different aspects of color theory; by exploring different design concepts; by experiencing and understanding the power of planning; and by using individual critiques for all. The goal is to inspire the advanced beginners and intermediates, provide a review and challenges for the advanced student.
