PERSPECTIVE, VALUE AND COLOR: FROM THE SKETCH TO THE WATERCOLOR with Benno Philippson

La Romita School of Art Terni, Italy

Eyes for light, nose for smell, ears for sound, touch for texture – be young again with all senses ready to enjoy and capture the beauty around you. Surrounded by history and Umbria’s beautiful living practices, Benno Philippson will lead a workshop to explore how three crucial elements – Perpsective, Value, and Color – are used to create and enhance foundational sketches.

Benno will emphasize good drawing technique, how to negotiate a blank piece of paper, page composition, the drama and emphasis of what the sketch is about

ILLUSTRATED JOURNAL with Susan N. Jarvis

Have you ever wanted to combine your travel in Italy with an adventure in painting and sketching? Well, now is your chance! Join Susan N. Jarvis for a memorable exploration of the Umbrian countryside through illustrated journaling and watercolor sketching featuring you as the artist!

The world is more than words. Let your creativity capture the fascinating world around you through painting and sketching. Illustrated journaling teaches you to record your daily experiences and preserve memories of your travels in a creative way through pencil sketching, watercolor, acrylic, ink, photography and collage.

How is this different than a diary? For one thing, some of the pages don’t have any writing on them at all – just art! Pictures can elicit powerful emotions. You know what they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words!”
