Upcoming Fine Art Classes
Fine Art Department
Instructor: Jeannie Vodden
During the workshop, you will learn about painting translucent and transparent objects, about creating the illusion of volume, about reflected light, cast shadows and soft turning edges.
Watercolor demonstrations, class discussions and one-on-one instruction are always part of Jeannie’s classes.
Students are encouraged to bring their own photos to work from if they desire. However, Jeannie will provide images for those who would like to follow along with her as she demonstrates. Jeannie will have handouts, color and instructional charts for sale. This class is for beginning through advanced painters.
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. The visual effects of glazing are revealed in an unusual feeling of depth of color. The results are stunning and unique. This is not an instant gratification process, however, and takes patience and practice. Jeannie is a popular instructor of watercolor. She has taught workshops throughout California and out of state for 21 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 in the wider Sacramento area, Lodi, Stockton and throughout California.
A few of her many awards and activities include:
