Map and Directions

Watercolor is a powerful medium for depicting light, shade, shadow, and color. This day-long workshop is offered in two parts: a morning introductory session and an afternoon plein air session. While the two sessions are designed to work together, you may participate in either or both.




9:00AM – 12:00PM INTRODUCTION TO WATERCOLOR
COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE AND PLANNING
1250 14TH STREET, DENVER, CO

Join CARTA Director Christine G. H. Franck for a morning introduction to watercolor for sketching. You will learn about the tools, techniques, and medium of watercolor; practice techniques like running washes and working wet-on-wet; develop a color wheel and learn about color theory; and complete a watercolor sketch of a still life composition in practice for the afternoon plein air session. 

1:00PM – 4:00PM  PLEIN AIR WATERCOLOR SKETCHING
CHEESMAN PARK PAVILION

In the afternoon session, you will complete a watercolor sketch of one of Denver’s most beautiful civic structures: the Cheesman Park Pavilion. CARTA Director Christine G. H. Franck will lead you through composing your view, preparing a base sketch, developing shade and shadow, and techniques for sketching landscape elements in watercolor. In the event of rain, the sketch will be completed under the pavilion. Please bring a lightweight chair or blanket to sit on, and if you prefer to bring an easel, you may do so.
