May 1, 2019 - May 11, 2019


In her class, Ming will demonstrate her “Splash” painting as well as her lush watercolor technique. She will share her Sumi-e ink painting technique, while encouraging her students to find the technique(s) which best express their personal creativity. Her workshop will employ techniques from the artist’s popular book, “Splash Ink with Watercolor” which has inspired many artists to expand their repertoires to include a more free-form technique, over which they have considerable control. Ming gives her students the tools to continue working independently.

“Her demonstrations leave her students wanting more, while, at the same time, they get enough information to try the technique on their own.” S.R. New Mexico

Ming Franz

Ming Franz is widely recognized for her “splash” painting which combines primary watercolor and Chinese ink. In recent years she has experimented with acrylics on watercolor paper, canvas, and panels, developing her award-winning skills. Among the many awards she has received is the esteemed Grand Prize in the International Artist magazine’s challenge in Abstract /Experimental Art.

The artist was born in Taiwan where she discovered her talent at an early age. She has traveled and studied art for decades and has become a sought-after instructor. She now resides in New Mexico. She, like Georgia O’Keeffe, one of her favorite artists, has been transformed by the pristine desert light and the stunning Southwest landscape.

Ming is a faculty member of the New Mexico Art League.  She is a Signature Member of the New Mexico Watercolor Society, Golden Paints Company Certified Artist and Educator, and member of the National Watercolor Society, Sumi-e Society of America, Chinese American Art Development Foundation, and the American Society Association of Chinese Art.
