Workshops - Steve Rogers AWS, NWS

ARTIST STATEMENT

My purpose, as an artist is to portray the beauty of light and color in God's world as I experience it within my heart. These images are a series of watercolors I have painted since my first trip to the Mediterranean in 1992. On this and subsequent trips I have been able to paint this beautiful land not as one who sees it every day, but as a “visitor”, who is awestruck by something fresh and new and at the same time very ancient.

Steve has been teaching workshops throughout North America and In the Mediterranean for over 30 years. For a  list of  upcoming workshops for 2010 and 2011materials list, and a description of our  France Workshop please click on these  links or the link bar to the left.

 

See list below for a list of workshops Steve has conducted in the past.

My workshop will encourage students at all levels to advance their own vision and to improve the skills necessary to communicate that in watercolor. I paint and teach in a very straightforward traditional manner because I believe I can most honestly say what I want to with my brush and “juicy” watercolor paint. Workshop participants take away from my class knowledge about light and color and the way watercolor behaves through “mini-demos” of paint application, “dealing with dark values in watercolor”, “painting reflections” etc. and how these operate in my full painting demonstrations. I really enjoy teaching workshops and I think that translates into a comfortable learning environment for the class. Lots of student painting time along with personal help is available every day.
