Nemec Watermedia Workshop
Painting a path through creativity,
a 2 day WATERMEDIA WORKSHOP with P. Rayer Nemec
Dates: Wednesday, Nov. 15th & Thursday, 16th - 9:30am - 3:30pm
Jaycee Park Center for the Arts
Irving TX 75061
Kick start your creative spirit while experiencing the painting process. There will be small creative exercises in out of the box experiences to complement the ongoing painting process. These are designed to give you a multitude of ideas and to get you to think outside the edge of the paper, the surface of the canvas, the page, the tube, the palette, or the lens. It will give you permission to always ask “What If?”
We will be combining realism and abstraction to create compositions that begin in the heart and provide answers to those passions you want to bring to your studio? What color resonates in your feelings? What possibilities can you create from building on your past successful painting experiences? Each exercise will be a personal catalog of ideas to inspire your present and future work.
A variety of approaches to the painting process will be explored, allowing you to determine the ones that work best for you. This is not a class in paint like me but one in painting like you. Through the work in class and the sharing of ideas and suggestions during your daily painting revue you should have an abundance of ideas for future work and a clearer vision of how to go about doing your work with individuality and personal choice.
Several paintings will be started each day. On the first day creative thinking exercises will be done while painting starts are drying. There will be a class evaluation at the end of each session and a discussion of goals and processes for the next day. On the second day the layering process will be explored, bringing the painting starts to another level. Quick demonstrations of water media techniques will be presented at least 2Xs a day.
The last day will be a concentration on design, values, composition and emotional impact in order to know how you want to finish your work. You will go back to your studio with several wonderful notes and packets of creativity resources that you created in the class.
