Sue Martin: Experiments with Mixed Water Media

September 19, 2023 @ 9:30 am - September 20, 2023 @ 12:30 pm


Tuesday, September 19 (9:30  AM to 4:00 PM) and Wednesday, September 20 (9:30 AM to 12:30 PM)

COST: $200 /  Maximum of 8; Minimum of 4 / All ability levels

Sue Martin starts each year playing with paint. Experimenting with mixed water media in a playful way helps her shrug off old art habits and processes to make way for something exciting and new in the new year. In this workshop, she’ll lead participants through her play process, working with watercolor, acrylic paints and inks, mediums, and mark-making tools. It’s a fun, “no-fail” kind of day ripe with new discoveries. On day one, you’ll experiment indoors or under a shelter. On day two, you’ll learn how to take that new freedom outdoors (weather permitting) to capture the landscape in a new way.

NOTE: Participants need to bring 1” masking tape (beige), a water container, a water spray bottle, brushes, an apron, water-soluble crayons (Caron d’Ache, Inktense, Stabilo woodies, Art Crayons, etc.),  any watercolor, gouache, or acrylic paints they already own. Feel free to bring any decorative stamps or stencils that you may have.

Workshop Registration

Sue Martin reinvented herself after her mother died in 2007 when she realized life was short and if she really wanted to be an artist, she’d better get serious. In a few short years she went from “watercolor hobbyist” to college art major to second career professional artist and instructor. Though she loves plein air painting, she also enjoys working in the studio and playing with the elements of design to take her landscape paintings toward abstraction. She challenges herself to paint as loosely and expressively outdoors as she does in the studio. Sue’s work has won many awards and is in private collections all over the country. Sue works out of a studio in her home and in a shared studio in Salt Lake City.
