A MULTI-MEDIA APPROACH to watercolor landscape painting – loose, rough, messy, and approachable, using crayons, pencils, markers and watercolor. The crayons resist the watercolor and create highlights. We create paintings in a short amount of time from photos and from viewing the landscape. It’s a fearless, non-precious and empowering approach with great results, even from beginners.

Exercises that allow the magical world around us to be seen, appreciated and celebrated will be incorporated into the workshop.


ALAN LEON is a Bay Area artist, muralist and educator. He has taught hundreds of classes on creativity, drawing, painting, calligraphy and imagination. He was trained as a landscape architect and has been the seasonal artist-in-residence at The Omega Institute for Holistic studies for 22 years. His goal is to provide many avenues of creative expression and loosening up modes for students.
