In this workshop Jennifer will teach students how watercolor pouring is a freeing way to start their paintings. It is the underpainting for which the roses will develop through negative painting. Daily demos, group critiques and individual guidance. No drawing skills required!
Creating art for Jennifer Stone is as natural and necessary to her as breathing. Primarily self-taught, Jennifer dedicates the majority of her time painting in her studio. An award-winning artist, Jennifer Stone has been painting for over 25 years. Her expressions are primarily water media, and feature unconventional methods to enhance design, color, and texture. The art she creates is typically abstracted, or non-representational and reflects Jennifer’s own unique interpretation of our world. Mixed media is Jennifer’s preferred medium at this time. Her curiosity in creating her own handmade collage papers has launched a new workshop that she teaches and has been well received by other mixed media enthusiasts. Jennifer’s singular style has earned her numerous awards and countless admirers. Her accolades include both state and national titles, with her work displayed in private and corporate collections internationally. Jennifer has studied with a variety of artists, including Cheng-Khee Chee, Gerald Brommer, Robert Burridge, Zoltan Zsabo, Anne Bagby, Mark Mehaffey, Andy Evansen, Karen Knutson, Janet Rogers, and many more. This assisted her on her journey to find her voice. While the influence of each of these learning experiences can be found in her art, Jennifer’s own voice speaks clearly in her work. This is attributed to the dedication she puts forth in working at her craft. “My studio is located next door to our home, on an acreage surrounded by trees, wildlife and serenity. This keeps my mind free of any of life’s busyness and gives me the opportunity to focus with an open and clear mind. To this day, I am still humbled when I am made aware my painting has touched the soul of another person, or brought them pleasure,” she says. “This inspires me and gives me hope that I can continue to leave an impression with some of the images I have created.”

2021 COVID Precautions
It is impossible to assess the impact, if any, of COVID-19 for the upcoming 2021 season, but all artists should be prepared to abide by the following measures while attending workshops.
- Participants must fill out a quick health questionnaire to make sure they do not exhibit any symptoms.
- Masks are required to be worn while in classrooms and shared spaces.
- Participants must also wash hands or use hand sanitizer at the beginning of each class and often during class sessions.
- Participants are required to stay 6 feet apart for social distancing protocols.
A floor plan per each of our three studios has been created to ensure that the artist tables and lecture area will allow people to socially distance themselves a minimum of 6 feet.
In lieu of crowding around the artist during demos, a desktop camera system and large format digital TV screens have been installed in each of the studios to allow students a close up view of demos.
We will be providing students with hand-sanitizer at their work stations. In addition, the studios will be closed for 1 hour in the late evenings for a daily UV sanitation and touch surface cleaning.
