Dive deep into the art principles of color and composition using a variety of media in sketchbooks.  While working expressively and keeping it loose, you will practice counter balancing with color, moving color in space, the power of color contrasts, and more.  Various artists and art movements will be referenced as you learn about Modernist color development, too. Subject matter will include figure, still life, and abstraction.  Join Barbara as you work in sketchbooks making many studies to understand composition and color possibilities.

Media will include gouache, watercolor, compressed charcoal, conte crayon.  Some drawing experience is recommended.

Barbara Fugate is a painter committed to making drawings and paintings that express life rather than imitate it. Discovering and experiencing “how things are” rather than “what they are” continues to inspire and drive Fugate’s art and art instruction. Fugate received a BFA from Western Kentucky University and a MFA in painting from Miami University of Ohio. Fugate has taught expressive drawing and painting classes and workshops in Seattle, as well as international workshops for over 25 years. Schools where Fugate has taught include Gage Academy of Art, Seattle Pacific University, Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts (Victoria, BC), La Conner Art Workshops, as well as her own Seattle Weekend Art Workshops. Fugate’s artwork is published in “The Best of Drawing and Sketching” by Terry Sullivan, “Landscape Painting” by Mitchell Albala, and Margaret Davidson’s book, “Contemporary Drawing”.
