Upcoming Fine Art Classes
Fine Art Department
Instructor: Jeannie Vodden
Students may follow along with Jeannie, or bring their own images to work from.
• Learn how to use a limited palette of only three transparent staining hues to achieve beautiful rainbow-colored layers of color.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Her preference for the complex play of form and light is balanced by her use of a very simple palette. Starting with only three colors, and seldom using more than six, she glazes many transparent layers. Each layer modifies the last, changing the color and adding a multi-leveled glow. Though the process takes some patience, the visual effects are revealed in an unusual feeling of depth of color… perfectly suited for transparent watercolor.
Jeannie is a popular instructor of watercolor. She has taught workshops throughout California and in Wyoming and Washington State for over 20 years. She enjoys demonstrating her watercolor techniques to art and community organizations and finds the challenge of judging art competitions rewarding and inspiring.
She has shown her work in galleries and businesses throughout California. For 2016 and 2017 her one-woman exhibits were presented at Gallery at 48 Natoma, Folsom, CA; Double Dip Gallery, Lodi, CA; the Amador County Arts Council Gallery, Sutter Creek, CA; and Orland Art Center, Orland, CA.
A few of her many awards and activities include:
For several years she demonstrated in the “California Works” Fine Art Show at the California State Fair, sharing her work and talking to visitors of the well-regarded fine art venue. Annually she has opened her home and studio to the public for the Amador County Art Studio Tours.
Jeannie designs a theme fair window at the Amador County Fair in Plymouth, CA, each year for the Amador Stars, the local Cancer support organization. For the 2010, 2011 and 2014 wine release by Young’s Vineyard in the Shenandoah Valley, CA, she has designed unique and beautiful fine art wine labels.
