2018 Course Information: Mini Abstract Watercolor Painting

Mini Abstract Watercolor Painting

Designing a Miniature Abstract in Watercolor Workshop

Watercoloring with Marlene Gremillion is back by popular demand!  In this two day workshop, students will learn how to create mini-masterpieces using simple watercolors and perhaps some colored pencils with a little accent of acrylic or gold leaf,  or stencils for added detail using a variety of techniques! The size of each painting will be no larger than ¼ sheet of watercolor paper (15×11”)- or perhaps even smaller!  Students can anticipate completing 1 to 4 watercolor art pieces in this 2 day workshop, working at your own pace.

Students will be guided in drawing abstract shapes from ordinary objects – Marlene says “You will be surprised!  You can never run out of creative ideas this way.” No previous experience in watercolor or abstract necessary. Watercolor paper may be purchased for $5.75 from instructor.  One sheet should be sufficient.

Instructor: Marlene Gremillion

Marlene Gremillion, a Hot Springs Village, Arkansas artist, enjoys creating and designing in many mediums and has done so for over 35 years. Texture, color and light play an important role in what she designs be it in Oil, pastel, watercolor, photography, collage, glass, polymer clay or jewelry. She enjoys working, manipulating and creating with her hands and experiments to see if she can come out with a pleasing artistic piece. “It sort of reminds me of being a child at play. I just enjoy having fun along with it being therapeutic for me”. Marlene is active in the arts and enjoys teaching. “I enjoy watching others learn and get excited about creating their own works. As adults, we forget to have fun. I encourage students to do just that; you must enjoy what you are doing in order to be creative and then it shows in your works.” Marlene teaches at the National Park Community College, in Continuing Education and at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock. She also enjoys traveling and teaching workshops. She is a registered teacher through the Arts on Tour with the Arkansas Arts Council Little Rock, AR.
