Clarity. Confidence. Common sense. These are what JJ Jiang brings to his instruction. But you will quickly realize that his artistic passion and creativity underlie all that he says and does. With sincerity and good humor, JJ will share his wisdom and insights stemming from his eastern cultural background and his deep knowledge of western art. He approaches painting with a unique and refreshing perspective that he truly enjoys sharing with workshop participants! His years of teaching experience in fine art enable him to pull you in and grow in depth and confidence as an artist.
JJ’s teaching is based on his belief that four fundamentals apply to all subject matter and even across mediums. JJ’s daily demos and talks will include clear instruction on these fundamentals: drawing, value, color, and edges. JJ will also discuss and demonstrate various techniques in watercolor, but he emphasizes the need for all artists to go beyond technique to explore their creative drive that has brought them to the easel.
In this workshop JJ will do daily step-by-step demos, give clear, brief talks, and provide individual guidance tailored to your level. To wrap up, if time allows, JJ will have a brief critique and a question & answer session each day.
Day 1 Focus on landscape painting (JJ provides reference photo)
Day 2 Focus on urbanscape painting (JJ provides reference photo)
Day 3 Focus on portrait painting (participants bring their own photo reference or
may choose to use JJ’s and follow his demo)
