"Steve Rogers Three Day Workshop in Central Florida"
April 20-22, 2015
Germaine Marvel Building, 341 Packwood Avenue at the Maitland Art & History Center

Florida artist Steve Rogers has risen to the top ranks of American watercolorists in recent years,
and he is winning major awards, judging national exhibitions, demonstrating before large audiences,
and teaching packed workshops.
But 15 years ago he was like many artists who survive by selling acceptable paintings of regionally popular subjects. "I painted more seagulls, lighthouses, and boats than I care to remember," he says with a chuckle. That experience now helps him motivate his students to make dramatic improvements in their watercolors.

"I try to help them improve their skills, but the most important thing I think I can share
with them is the importance of painting with passion."

Steve Rogers attended Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, graduated from Monmouth College, in Monmouth, Illinois, and later studied with Harold Stevenson and Robert E. Wood. He is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, and the Florida Watercolor Society; receiving major awards from those societies, including the top purchase award in the National Watercolor Society show.


In this workshop, beginners and advanced painters alike will learn about
"light and color and the way juicy and vibrant watercolor behaves";
"dealing with dark values in watercolor";
"secrets of painting reflections"
and much, much more.

Lots of student painting time along with personal help is available every day.

This workshop is open to all watercolorists - CFWS members and non-members.
All levels of ability can benefit from this workshop.
The cost is $300 for members and $350 for non-members.

Sign up now and reserve your space.
All CFWS workshops are first reserved basis.

Workshops are now held in the Germaine-Marvel Building
at the Maitland Art Center.
