$40 members/$50 not-yet members
*
Fee includes both classes:  Sunday, February 2 and 9

*Supplies are included for beginingers in the workshop fee.

Learning brush manipulation and using the full range of brushes creates expressive and definitive stokes. Participants will begin learning how to control both the application of watercolor pigment and their brushes, followed by various watercolor wash techniques for mixing color. Reserving the whites of the paper will be demonstrated by controlling the brush movements. Class will continue with watercolor wash techniques, while beginning to use color and learning about watercolor pigments. 

Jennifer Koury, a watercolorist, delights in both the natural world's play of light and color on forms, and watercolor's whimsical properties: color bleeding, reticulation and natural paint sediments.  Koury has enjoyed a rewarding career as a dedicated painter and freelance illustrator.  She is published in both children's and adult based books. Her work is featured at George Washington's Mount Vernon and Yuma Regional Medical Center, Arizona.  After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in Painting and Printmaking, Koury continued her studies to graduate from Art Center College of Design, California.  A member of the BSA, NFWS and NFPAP, she resides with her family in Buffalo, and is inspired by the natural beauty of Western New York.
