The Simplicity of Watercolor Workshop
Spend three days at the beautiful foothills of the Appalachian Mountains learning from NWS Signature Member JJ Jiang about the simplicity of watercolor painting! In this workshop JJ will do daily demos, give clear, brief talks, and provide individual guidance tailored to your level.
JJ is an award winning artist and a gifted instructor. Though accomplished in watercolor, he is a versatile artist – excelling in oils (Signature Member of Oil Painters of America), drawing, Chinese brush painting, with a variety of subjects including landscape/urbanscapes, human figures and portraits, and still life.
