This 4-day indoor workshop is a one of a kind experience for all levels of watercolor artists.  This workshop will be led by Ted Lawson in the classrooms of the CMA School of Art adjacent to the galleries of the Canton Museum of Art.  Enjoy working with other artists while exploring innovative and traditional drawing and watercolor techniques and approaches to help develop and enhance their personal painting styles.  Exercises, lectures, demonstrations and critiques will enable students to develop a watercolor painting that not only embodies their own personal narrative but the elements and principles of design as well.  Students will paint each day using what was seen and learned while it is fresh in mind.  Daily critiques reinforce the learning process.
