Watercolor FUNdamentals with Karen Beauprie

Make this your New Year’s Resolution
“I will learn how to Watercolor in 2010!”

Popular instructor and Florida Keys award winning artist, Karen Beauprie returns to The Studios of Key West in January for Watercolor FUNdamentals. The artist will offer a wonderful opportunity for community members to learn the basics and expand their painting skills, January 4 to 6, from 10am to 4:30pm at the Historic Armory.

“This three-day course is great for newcomers,” says Program Manager Martha Barnes, “and also suited to those wanting to brush up on technique and expand on fundamentals. We offer a place to discover the spontaneity of the medium, create vibrant and flowing paintings, and build a strong foundation in the discipline of watercolor painting.”

This workshop is thought of as a prelude to Beauprie’s weekly watercolor sessions, soon to be offered at TSKW every Monday afternoon from January 11. Students will receive advice on organizing a palette, choosing and preparing materials and equipment, and how to use water and pigment to create a variety of brush strokes, lay down washes, and create specific textures. Those interested can register now
