Land O’ Lakes Arts (LOLA) will hold a three-and-a-half-day winter watercolor workshop with artist Jane Barnard starting Monday, Jan. 13 through Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020. This class, “Watercolor Energizer: Fresh and Loose,” will revisit classic watercolor techniques such as wet-in-wet, glazing, color, and fresh, expressive brushwork. Instructor Barnard will demo these techniques and show how to apply them to the student’s own “toolbox” of skills. The afternoons will be set aside for independent painting, with individual guidance from Jane at the student’s own pace.
“I am a passionate painter and teacher, and I’m especially gentle and helpful in encouraging those wanting to stretch their artistic vision and skills,” Barnard said.
Cost of class is $325 and includes a continental breakfast each day. A supply list is needed (visit lolaartswi.com). Class times will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday. All levels are welcome, however, absolute beginners are to contact Jane prior to class. Deadline for payment/registration is Monday, Jan. 6, 2020.
Barnard is a member of the Wisconsin Watercolor Society, Wisconsin Visual Artists, and Wisconsin Plein Air Painters. She obtained her master’s degree from Marquette University and her studies have included the University of Paris (Sorbonne), the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and workshops from master watercolorists.
Barnard teaches at The Clearing in Door County, Dillmans Creative Art Center in Lac du Flambeau, and The Hub in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., among others.
