Stan Kurth: Intuitive Painting with Ink, Watercolor and Gouache

$335/3-day Workshop

January 13, 2023- January 15, 2023

Intuitive Painting with Ink, Watercolor and Gouache

This workshop is designed to teach all levels of students to paint intuitively, starting without preconceived notions or outcome. There will be no preliminary planning or drawing. Process will dictate direction as students use ink, watercolor and gouache to implement elements and principles of design. Instruction will start with random ink marks, then color using a mixture of ink, watercolor and gouache to create a library of design elements. There will be regular comments and evaluation of work in progress concerning relationships between elements and principles. It is entirely possible finished work may be representational, but the goal is work which is compositionally pleasing and aligned with the artist’s personal aesthetic.

All we have in non-objective painting are the principles and elements – until you remember intuition counts. Intuition requires practice. Practice requires drive. Stan Kurth shares the practice with inspiring honesty and insight.
