Intermediate Watercolor Series
October 26th, November 2nd, 9th, 16th
Instructor: Stacey Fletcher Reynolds
The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to a range of ideas and techniques through the unique properties of watercolor. Using this as an expressive painting medium, the problems revolve around the experimentation of materials as well as to challenge conceptual building skills while understanding image making. Learn brush strokes, washes, composition, use of color, and much more. We are going to study the elements of painting through the skill of observation, understanding that the painting itself is a window rather than and object. We start with the basics, and then work on actual image making. If you are more advanced, I will direct the exercise in a different manner. Our subject matter will be painting from landscape or floral photographs that you bring to class. All supplies provided. Open to participants 16 and older. $95 (members) / $106 (future members)
About the Instructor:
Stacey Fletcher received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Drawing from The University of Tennessee in 2003, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Valdosta State University in 2000. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in many individual, group, and juried exhibitions. She recently moved her family to Daytona Beach to take a position as an Assistant Professor of Studio Arts at Daytona State College. As a cathartic painter, Stacey’s work expresses emotions and frustrations that would otherwise be hard to express verbally. They seem abstract at first glace to the viewer, but have some sense of childhood imagery disguised among the colorful layers. Her work is fresh with vibrant lively colors, with layered metaphors of herself and others contrasted with the chaotic approach of the energetic marks.
