Class / Workshop  |  Collage Illumination: Celebrate Works in Victor Shanchuk: Chemical Light

International Center for Watercolor

Wednesday, July 10, 2019, 10:30 am–1:30 pm

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

Experiment with watermedia techniques to create a composition with a path of light. After observing and discussing composition, participants will sketch their idea for a path of light and paint a background.  Collage pieces can be adhered to accentuate the composition,P and to create a layering effect of contrasting color and value.

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.
