Join artist Zuzka Vaclavik for the first watercolor series to take place in the new Center for Art and Nature. She will teach different watercolor techniques and participants will be able to use both the garden and museum spaces for inspiration. Zuzka received her MFA from The University of Georgia in 2008 and since then has exhibited her work in Cambodia, Germany, Austria and across the United States. Zuzka held her first solo exhibition entitled Thirst in Atlanta through Poem 88 Gallery in 2015. Her works are in numerous public and private collections, including the permanent collection at the High Museum of Art.

SESSION 4: Using Pointillism Techniques to Tackle Complicated Landscapes

In our final class, we will look at the garden landscape as a whole and explore the use of pointillist watercolor techniques to begin to learn how to tackle the visually complex subject matter, such as trees or busy scenes from afar. How do different patterns and colors relate to one another? How can we break apart the landscape and begin to understand how different natural elements come together to form a whole?
