Join artist Charles Coates at the Foster and create studies of artist-explorer Tony Foster’s bright watercolor paintings. You’ll learn digital hacks for your painting style, from using the Apple Pencil (or your fingers) like traditional brushes to turning a simple sketch into a complete work. Participants will learn how to apply elements of art such as line, shape, texture, and color to digital painting.
Through this workshop, Charles will host an art-making activity using Gamble Garden’s flora as inspiration for making prints. Participants begin with a tour through the gardens as Charles instructs how to draw from observations. Participants will then learn how to transform their drawings into stamps for monotype-printmaking. Together, we’ll create a series of unique images that share repetitious shapes, along with their own unique qualities.
