We still have two painting places left on Maggie Renner Hellmann’s Courageous Color** Workshop this May: Twelve people are booked, three of whom are non-painting partners. So we have room for a couple more painters (plus their non-painting partners if they would like to come.
**Maggie is American so I’m trying to spell color her way, but I sometimes forget!
Our guests always have a fun and inspiring time with Maggie, whose course will run from Saturday 28 May to Saturday 4 June 2022. Details and a link below.
Maggie calls her week a Courageous Color Workshop, and among other exciting things, you will learn how fearlessly to put vibrant colour into your painting. And you can choose which medium(s) you would like to paint in: oils, acrylics, watercolours and/or pastels, the choice is yours and Maggie is skilled in teaching all of them.
Maggie Renner Hellmann is a contemporary California painter who paints with love, passion and energy. Her work is characterized by a unique blend of loose, energetic brushwork and strong compositions of exuberant color. She says: “I love the joy of color and the poetry of brushwork.”
Maggie is also an enthusiastic tutor who has been teaching for more than 15 years – and loves it! Her workshop will cover oils, acrylics, pastels and drawing, sketching mediums including wax pastels and watercolour. She will encourage the beginner and challenge the more advanced painter. Maggie says: “In this plein air workshop, we will paint in spectacular Tuscan locations. You’ll be learning and practising the core elements of successful paintings.”
Some comments on Maggie’s courses at the Watermill:
“Maggie is good at teaching in all mediums and with all levels. She did wonderful demos in watercolour, acrylic, pastel and oil. Every day we did critiques together and learned from each other. I highly recommend this art workshop, as well as the most wonderful accommodation with great food and wine. A little piece of heaven in experiencing Italy.”
“An art workshop in a place like that Watermill can’t get better than that, especially with you guys as host and hostess.”
“One of the best vacations I have ever had.”
