Watercolor Workshop In a relaxing and creative environment, learn the FUNdamentals of watercolor that can be applied to any watercolor painting. Starting with a picture, the instructor will guide students through the process of translating the image into their own drawing and then painting. Students will learn about composition, scale, brush work and color selection. All levels are welcome. What goes with watercoloring? Wine! Students can sip on wine and nibble on snacks while being expressive with art.
Instructor Amy Beidleman Years ago Amy became smitten with watercolor painting when she saw Winslow Homer’s work in a collection of greeting cards, notably “The Blue Boat”. She is intrigued by the transformation of a blank piece of paper into a painted space, and she strives to take the observer to a similar sense of place and feeling. The love of the outdoors is evident in Amy’s paintings.
Amy is not only a successful and accomplished painter she is also a veteran teacher. She volunteers as the Water Media Curator for the Aspen Chapel Gallery. She has studied with Alvaro Castagnet, where she learned the joy of being able to do two loves at once - painting while being outside or plein-air painting. She has also studied with well-known watercolorists Andy Evansen and Iain Stewart.
