Watercolor Painting at Villa Terrace
Professor Emeritus Leon Travanti will explore the expressive qualities of watercolor as well as observe the special qualities and details of the gardens and the unusual architectural details of Villa Terrace Museum.
Participants will use a variety of water and brush experiments depending on previous experience. Travanti works with beginners and experienced painters and will use the first session to demonstrate techniques, encourage experimentation and focus on individual concerns.
Supplies to bring: A small watercolor book/block; plastic water jug; white dinner plate or such to mix paints; red, yellow, blue, green, umber watercolor tubes; quality watercolor brushes in three sizes; plus a large wash brush to flood paper surfaces, cotton rags and kitchen paper towels.
Professor Emeritus Leon Travanti of the Art & Design Program at UWM’s Peck School of the Arts has worked world-wide for corporations as a location drawing/painting artist, and brings his experience into the experimental nature of classes.
