In this workshop students will enhance their watercolor skills by learning to paint "in the style of" the American master Georgia O'Keeffe. This hands-on class will include wet-in-wet, fresh and loose brushwork, and color, inspired by her glorious flowers and landscape. You will enhance your own creativity by "seeing through her eyes." And you'll be inspired to create your own unique variation on her work. Students will also watch a video on the artist's extraordinary life, and how that shaped her painting.
