The Sound of Color: Watercolor Landscapes (ages 14 – 17)

Monday, June 12, 2017 to Friday, June 16, 2017

9 AM – 4 PM

Rhythm, tone, contrast, vibrancy, color. These words describe both music and painting. An immersive, five-day workshop will explore the landscapes of the Mississippi Story. The workshop will focus on color, texture, and composition in a plein air environment. We will discuss both traditional and experimental watercolor techniques throughout the week. Cost: $250. Register here.

Art supplies will be provided. Please bring plenty of water, sunglasses, and sun protection.

Teacher: Kelly K. Walters teaches Visual Arts at the Mississippi School of the Arts in Brookhaven, Mississippi. Walters earned a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Mississippi College and a Bachelor of Fine arts in Art Education degree from the University of Southern Mississippi.
In her own work, Walters creates symbolic portraits that reveal the soul of the subject. Combining symbolic expression and light, Kelly Walters strives to portray visually her physical and mental experiences of life. She often encourages viewers to interact with her artwork by allowing the viewer to manipulate the light source for the painting. This reveals hidden areas of the artwork that were not previously visible.
