Workshops - Mary Ann Beckwith

Mary Ann Beckwith


Mary Ann Beckwith | 3 Days | October 22-24 | Brush and Beyond | All Levels

Mary Ann’s workshop “Brush and Beyond” is an art-altering experience! The energy filled days explore creative methods of watermedia application, including the building layers: texturing and collage. Participants learn new techniques and experiment with materials that allow them to better express their visions and ideas through their paintings and collages, whether those are representational or abstract imagery. Demonstrations and discussions focus on composition and design, how to recharge your work, sources of inspiration and the business of being an artist. Each day includes plenty of time for painting and optional critiques.

Mary Ann is a signature member of AWS, NWS, Watercolor USA, and many other societies, as well as the Executive Director of the International Society of Experimental Artists.  She is the author of Creative Watercolor: a Step-by-Step Guide and Showcase. Her work has also been showcased in many articles in books and magazines. Along with her active and engaged role in the art community, Mary Ann creates and exhibits her art, juries shows, and teaches workshops across the country.
