Who should take this course?

Textile artists, collage artists, multimedia artists. No prior watercolor experience is necessary.

As a textile or multimedia artist, familiarity with color is a valuable skill.

Working with color in watercolor gives you another dimension of becoming experienced with color. Watercolor is fluid – of course! So, watching color materialize in watercolor is magical. Also, it gives immediate feedback about color harmonies, values, unexpected color alliances, and so much more.

Through several exercises we will work with:

  • Quick review of materials.
  • Watercolor techniques, such as: wet-on-wet painting processes, tipping-in color, damp-on-damp, managing too much water.
  • Avoiding muddy colors by using analogous color harmonies
  • Capitalizing on value; specifically, a narrow value range (as in more primitive rugs) and a broad value range (as may be present in more contemporary rugs)
There is an assignment in preparation for the workshop. It will be sent upon registration.

Once registered, students will also receive a materials list. I recommend professional materials in the supply list as “preferred,” but will also include less expensive student-grade materials, in case you aren’t ready to splurge on the more expensive materials.

Jane has taught for over 30 years in watercolor, drawing, art history, and design. More recently, she’s been teaching textile artists in various art disciplines, such as watercolor techniques, to apply to their fiber passions. Her undergraduate degree is from the University of Nebraska in Textiles and Photo-Journalism; her Master’s Degree from Harvard University is in Museum Studies.

Jane taught herself to sew and embroider as a child, and has worked with fiber arts her whole life. She’s published many articles on watercolor painting. A recent article on how to select a frame for rug hooking for ATHA Magazine is available here “Which is the best frame for Rug Hooking?

More About
Jane M. Mason

As a small child, I started taking art classes at Joslyn Museum in Omaha. Every Saturday morning I was at the museum for a class. As a five-year-old, I won my first art contest and distinctly remember the drawing I had created being used on the cover of the spring catalog for Joslyn Museum. My childlike enthusiasm for art and happiness creating art is in my DNA now. It’s part of every piece of art I create.
