Hoffman Center Offers Watercolor Class

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer Shaping Your Watercolors: Composition, Color & Concepts for Beginners May 4-5, 2019.

Tuition: $100

Materials Fee: $6.00

Come explore the world of watercolor! This class will present basic concepts dealing with creating compositions, color and color mixing, and painting techniques aimed at the beginning watercolor student. This class will give students everything they need to get started in watercolor.

This is a two-day workshop from 10am to 4pm each day with a break for lunch. On day 1 students will paint from life, and on day 2 they will paint from photographs.

Eugene artist Carolyn Gates has been working in watercolor for the past 15 years. The qualities that characterize her work are strong color and compositions that explore the relationships of shapes to make pleasing visual patterns. This results in an abstraction of the subject. Her work investigates beauty, shape and color. In doing so, she hopes to discover the interplay between the ordinary and extraordinary.

Gates currently teaches watercolor at Maude Kerns Art Center in Eugene, Oregon, and teaches watercolor workshops at the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita, Oregon.

She enjoys teaching and is inspired by the work her students do. Her focus is teaching basic concepts, while encouraging each student to find their own voice.

          Gates says, “After every class and workshop, I want to go back to my studio and paint with the freedom and joy I see in my student’s work.”

Gates studied studio art at Mira Costa College in Oceanside, California, and watercolor painting at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon. She studied watercolor with Carol Carter, Satoko Motouji, and Judy Morris. She is currently a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon.
