Upcoming Workshops

Watercolor Magic with Kathleen Lanzoni, May 17th and 18th, 10:00am to 4:00pm

Special Sneak Peak Demo - Thursday April 25, 2019 12:00pm to 1:00pm, Park Hill Art Club

Price: $140 PHAC Members

Using the exciting medium of watercolor, students will learn about creating a painting from sketch to a colorful finished piece. The focus of the workshop will be to enjoy learning watercolor techniques as well as composition, values and color of our subjects.

Class begins with a discussion and demonstration, then working together, step by step, we get right to painting. Students will get individual feedback throughout the two days of painting. We will discuss many aspects of creative painting techniques and process with emphasis on enjoying the flow of water and paint on paper. Let’s have fun with the magic of watercolors!

Kathleen is an award-winning artist with a passion for watercolor painting! Painting in the studio as well as Plein Air, she immerses herself in the fluidity and unpredictable qualities of watercolor paint to capture the brilliant light and colors of nature that are before her. The magic of layering translucent paint allows the light to shine from the surface, through the colors, to us as observers.

Kathleen paints in a realistic painterly style, bringing the effect of changing light and color that describes the atmosphere, context and shape of the scene to the paper. She is an experienced instructor, exhibiting in many juried shows and galleries as well as participates around the country in Invitational plein air events.

Kathleen grew up in both Montreal and California, and for over 27 years has enjoyed the endless subjects that living in Boulder, Colorado, offers. Kathleen was formally trained at the Art Institute of Boston and at the Massachusetts College of Art, graduating from both schools with a BFA.
