    A studio workshop that explores the practical use and implementation of design principles while working with a
    combination of watercolor and other watermedia paints.  The workshop provides the design basics for all types of
    painting, and is actually the grammar of art.  Emphasis is on working with the elements and principles of design,
    while using conventional collage techniques and powerful digital collage available through the use of computer
    software.  Students will be encouraged to imagine a story that their own photographic references inspire involving
    the figure and the location and the natural design in reference materials.   Conventional and digital collage are the
    tools to build the story into personal dialogue for the viewer to enjoy.  Students will receive plenty of personal
    attention, coaching and painting time.

    Tech savvy student artists are encouraged to bring laptop computers and photo software for some hands-on digital
    collage experience.
