Workshop Description 

Explore a range of strategies for painting with watercolor. Exercises will include mixing and layering washes, using a full value scale from light and dark, adjusting color, and working wet-in-wet. Students will also be encouraged to playfully explore the many surprises of watercolor as we build a working understanding of the medium. Class will work primarily from observation (still life, landscape and the model). Experienced students and those new to watercolor are welcome.


Joel Janowitz has exhibited widely, showing recently at Clark University in “Water + Color,” also at Concord Art Center, and at the Schoolhouse Gallery, Provincetown. His work has been collected by numerous museums including the Whitney Museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Harvard University Museums, and The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 2016 Janowitz received his fourth Artist’s Fellowship in painting from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. In 2013 he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship.
