Class / Workshop  |  On a Beach: Celebrate The Artists of Lockport

International Center for Watercolor

Wednesday, July 31, 2019, 10:30 am–1:30 pm

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

Paint the shapes of figures in the style of your choice. Using photos with distinct light and shadow patterns on the human form, participants will create the shape of the figure silhouetted against the background, reserve the white of the paper, and use the negative shapes around the figure to create form. 

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.

Photos and sketches of figures with distinct light and shadow patterns on the human form
