      Kathleen Conover-Chaos to Order: Watermedia Workshop

      Create Dynamic Art!  Starting a painting with color, texture, gestural marks and layers may seem like “chaos”, but it delivers vital energy that is not only fun and intuitive but necessary.  Great design and composition are the elements that bring “order” to a rich start and turn it into an attention-getting and expressive finished painting.   Beginner or advanced – you are encouraged to discover and explore your unique expression and personal imagery in realism, abstraction or non-objective.  Demonstrations, a 9 page syllabus plus handouts, individual attention and independent work time will enable understanding and application of new information and processes.  Specific lessons on texture building, color concepts, layering, how to do a value study, understanding design principles and elements, and more will be presented.   “Most of all,” Kathleen says, “I want to help each artist advance to the next level in their work – no matter where they start.”   Bring your sense of adventure and enthusiasm for this high-energy, fully-packed workshop.  An introduction to Kathleen’s teaching is included in a three part video in “Workshops” on her web site:  KathleenConover.com.   Kathleen Conover is a full time artist, dividing her time between painting, teaching, judging and gallery ownership (20 years).  She holds signature status in several international and national organizations including AWS-DF (Dolphin Fellow), NWS, TWSA-MA (Master Artist), ISEA-NF (Nautilus Fellow) and WHS.   Kathleen has garnered numerous awards including the •AWS Silver Medal of Honor, High Winds Medal of Honor and the Mary Bryan Memorial Award •TWSA Best of Show Skyledge Award  •Shenzhen International Watercolor Biennial Honorable Mention  •TWSA Winsor Newton Award  •ISEA Best of Show Gracie Award  •NWS Potomac Valley Watercolorists Award  •Audubon Artists Aquamedia Award of Excellence  •WCUSA Juror’s Award  •CWA Best of Show.  Most recently she is honored to have invitations to several International Watercolor Society exhibitions including: China, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Taiwan and Thailand.
