Intermediate Watercolor Workshop

Artist/Instructor:  Jennifer Koury
$36 members/$46 not-yet members

Express yourself with enormous potential. Learn to take advantage of watercolor's unique ability to allow complements and pigment minerals of differing weights to settle out into gorgeous, reticulated colors. Each watercolor pigment is made from a different mineral with unique characteristics, including, staining, sedimentary, and/ or transparent to opaque. Paint a scene or object of your choice, and learn clarity of color and watercolor techniques, while experimenting with color pigments, their mineral weights and characteristics, as well as, mixing color complements.  

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.
