Timothy Standring creates watercolor and oil paintings of intimate Colorado landscapes.

Join us for our next Visiting Artist Series with Timothy Standring on June 3-7 fom 9AM – 4PM:

With wit and whimsy, filled with a passionate knowledge of the history of watercolor painting, Dr. Standring will hold your attention during this five-day workshop in which you’ll cover all the basics.  Fundamentally, you’ll learn with hands-on exercises that watercolor techniques are closely aligned with paper surfaces, brushes, and even the pigments themselves. All of these have interesting properties that lend to the final painting. Students will be painting in the studio & offsite at places such as duck pond in City Park or Red Rocks in Morrison, CO. Students are encouraged to exchange contact info during the first class and arrange to carpool.

You’ll experiment with cold and hot press papers, natural and artificial brushes, different brands of watercolor pigments, learn how to stretch paper, and set up your portable kit for painting on site while traveling for pleasure or for work.  And most of all, you’ll learn how to discern what constitutes a true watercolor painting.
