Watercolor and Plants: Using Natural Forms as Inspiration for Finding Your Voice in Watercolor

Fee: $190


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 2: Wet into Wet Application of Watercolor and Lyrical Mark Making using Tropicals

In this session, we will explore the nature of water as it relates to watercolor painting and the tropical plant collection (esp. orchids) in order to discover how to create expressive paintings. This class will focus on learning to use the amazing pattern and colors of the natural world as a jumping-off point for your own work.
