Carole Berren, a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, is an award winning painter and a popular instructor of drawing and watercolor. In the journey that is art, Carole embraces the curious wonderment of continued learning, discovery and experimentation.

Carole's recent work with watercolor on Yupo paper has earned her national recognition. She has been awarded the Edgar Whitney Memorial Award as well as the prestigious CFS Medal in the American Watercolor Society's Annual International Exhibitions in New York City. Her work has also received recognition in the North East, Rocky Mountain, New England and National Watercolor Societies. In June 2012 her work was published in North Light's "Splash 13 The Best of Watercolor" book. In addition, an article on Carole and her award winning work on Yupo was featured in the Watercolor Artist Magazine October 2012 Issue. One of Carole's Yupo pieces, an award winner in the "Over 60 Artists' Magazine Competition" will appear in the March 2015 issue.

The workshop will cover: Introduction to the properties of Yupo paper, how to apply paint to this non-absorbent surface and how to remove it, glazing, variegated and flat washes, enhancing the surface of the paper with numerous textural techniques. This part will be done with a strong realization of compositional organization. The second part of the workshop will deal with creating representational images from the first day's "play and experimentation". The third day we will create a painting on Yupo with a more conventional approach of drawing first and then applying paint using experiments of previous days.

Open to anyone. Tuition for this 3-day workshop is $300. The workshop will be limited to 18 participants. Download the flyer/signup sheet
