Some of the topics covered will include, how to use the specific and unique materials used in watercolor painting, how to successfully mix very subtle or specific colors, how to maximize your control over the paint, and how to strategically paint with layers to create a sense of realism.  Students will work from a mix of photographs and still life setups, to complete painting exercises based on the topics previously mentioned. each class will finish with a comprehensive analysis of each students work, as well as a list of tips and projects that may be completed at home, if the student desires. Basic student level materials will be supplied, but students are encouraged to bring specific specific brushes/paints, if they have them.

PORTFOLIO DROP_IN FOR TEENS WITH LIAM VOGEL ( for Teens and Advanced Children)

This 90 minute drop in is designed to give students professional assistance in completing drawing exercises, personal art projects, as well as school projects, in an effort to build up works with a college portfolio level of quality .  Not only will students receive assistance with their own project, they will also be given drawing assignments and exercises with the purpose of improving the students quality of work, which is one of the most crucial aspects to a successful portfolio. This class is open to any students looking to put together a consistent, high quality, body of work. students are not required to be working on a portfolio to participate in the class, and may use the instructors assistance during 90 minute session on any desired fine art projects. In addition to the high quality drawing exercises, students will also learn the importance of “breadth” in their portfolio ( the diversity of artistic approaches used within a body of work.) if necessary, students will also receive assistance in selecting a “concentration,” or focus within fine art, something that is required for every portfolio. Students are not required to bring any drawing/painting materials to the class, although its suggested that students bring photos of previously completed artwork for assessment. If students have any specific drawing materials they prefer, such as professional markers or pens, they are certainly welcome to bring them

This is a very individual program, focused on each individual students existing strengths and weaknesses. During the first ninety minute session, the instructor will review the students abilities, weaknesses and desired area of study, to determine the best course of instruction. wether you are looking to narrow down your area of artistic focus, simply improve the quality of your work, or complete a college level portfolio submission, this program will provide you professional guidance for the next step in your artistic journey!

This Class is also available as a privately scheduled session. Contact the Wallkill River School with your desired dates and times for classes, and we will schedule private portfolio sessions.
