Mornings will be structured in such a way that students will take ‘baby steps’ and do a ‘follow the leader’ approach. There will be plenty of time for personal attention, tips, questions and answers.

Some of the techniques that will be taught are composition, saving whites, wet wash, overlapping subjects, shadows, pushing darks against whites, rescuing paintings that have gone astray, and a lot more.

Afternoons will be a relaxing time for students to work on their own paintings. Bring in a stack of paintings that might not be done yet, or on which you want to try some special techniques, like glazing. Subject matter is everywhere at the Clearing—the woods, the trails, the water and the sky. Feel free to bring in your own photos and sketches.

Kari Anderson has been a resident of Door County since 1981. She teaches watercolor workshops in many locations, including 30 years of fifth grade watercolor workshops at Sevastopol School in Institute, Wisconsin. Her education background includes a degree from Madison Area Technical College in Commercial Art and Graphic Design. Her hard knocks education includes working in several framing shops, print shops, restaurants and galleries, most of them in Door County. She’s also a knitter, and has created a series of knitting pattern books with her mother, Carol Anderson. Together with her husband, Paul, they have made the old Groveland School, near Jacksonport, into a beautiful home.
