Watercolor Excitement

Ed Fenendael

May 29 - June 4, 2022

In addition, you’ll spend a day using Japanese masa paper. (Japanese masa paper is collaged to the watercolor paper after crushing the fibers, creating a wonderful abstract result.)

Push your color sense, challenge your design and composition skills and allow yourself to expand and explore. The key word is SIMPLIFY—to allow yourself to say what you want easily and with inner creative expression. You will leave the class renewed, refreshed and energized. Emphasis is always on individual attention. Each day will begin with a short lecture, followed by a demonstration. Join Ed and other artists for a week of excitement and creativity!
