Course Description:

This one day beginning watercolor painting workshop will teach you everything you need to know to create a beautiful botanical painting. No prior art experience is necessary. Negative painting will be emphasized, which is a technique where one paints around the outside of an object rather than on the object itself. Roberta will give demonstrations throughout the day using transparent watercolors to build a layered painting that will convey depth and dimension. Color choices and composition will be discussed to give participants the knowledge needed to create a successful painting. All necessary supplies will be provided. Everyone will leave this workshop with a completed plant and leaf themed painting which will be matted and ready for framing.

About the Artist:

Roberta E. Laine is a full-time artist based in Wisconsin.  She holds a  B.S. of Art Education (1978) and a Masters of General Education (1995) from The University of Wisconsin Stevens Point.  Roberta has taught visual art to public school students for 30 years, while creating her own artwork and pursuing her creative interests during the summers at Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Frogman’s Print Workshops, Milwaukee School of Art and Design, and the Marchutz School of Art in Aix-En-Provence, France. After retiring from teaching high school art in 2017, she had the opportunity to teach at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point in the Interior Architecture Department from 2017-2019.
