Class / Workshop  |  Leaves and Bugs: Celebrate the Small Paintings from the Collection

International Center for Watercolor

Wednesday, June 19, 2019, 10:30 am–1:30 pm

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

Paint a bug in your choice of style.  Using photos or bring in leaves and a bug specimen (not alive) to work from.  Participants will be instructed on reserving the whites of the paper to create the effects of light on nature, leaves, and bugs.

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.
