ESCANABA - Area artists will have the opportunity to improve their skills and enjoy some creative time in Watercolor Excitement with Masa Paper: Artist Level with Ed Fenendael, set for Friday and Saturday, May 13-14, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Bonifas Fine Arts Center.
Wisconsin native Fenendael invites students to explore transparent watercolor and ink on Masa paper. Painting on this type of rice paper is easy, and the results are stunning and rich. In the class, students will explore the creativity provided by the combination of watercolor and paper and discover the potential to create spontaneous, quick imagery. Students will find this technique perfect to capture the essence of a subject, and have fun as they experiment.
Fenendael is on the visiting faculty of the Kansas City Art Institute and conducts workshops throughout the U.S., Europe and in Mexico. His paintings can be found at the Watergate Gallery in Washington, D. C., Morning Mist Studio in Door County, Wisconsin, at Atelier Galerie Letoliacha in Monet's village of Giverny, France, and in numerous private and corporate collections.
This watercolor, titled “Heading Home,” was painted by artist Ed Fenendael. (Bonifas Fine Arts Center)
