If you are looking for a fun filled watercolor workshop, we have one for you from October 10-13 after our Fall Convention in Salem. Our Fall Convention Juror, Linda Kemp, will be the instructor for a 4-day “Negative Painting Addicted – Watercolor” workshop.

In Linda Kemp’s own words:

“Negative painting is an innovative approach to creating works of art and a fun exercise for your brain as you explore painting outside the lines! All shall be revealed as Linda guides you through this artistic investigation of techniques that transform imagery into evocative, stylized paintings that are built with layers of negative shapes. Tactics for interpretation of subject matter, negative painting strategies, simplified design, and basic color concepts, along with “seeing” for painting, are essential topics in this program. In step-by-step lessons you will learn strategies for painting landscapes, nature’s patterns and florals. You will discover secrets for making remarkable underpaintings, how to start, build and complete your original, unique artworks. This stimulating workshop offers demonstrations, prepared notes, and individual painting time guided by friendly advice. You will take home several small studies and finished pieces and gain skills that will make you a more capable, accomplished painter. Think positive with negative painting - it’s addictive! This program is suitable for all levels, although some painting experience is recommended.
