Watercolor: Expect the Unexpected

November 11, 2023, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Many artists accuse watercolor of being a difficult medium to grasp. Yes, it can be temperamental and unpredictable but that’s the beauty of it. In John Herron’s next workshop he’ll show you how to cut a deal with watercolor; you control half of the process and it controls the balance. It’s a win-win for you. The paint and water deliver exciting twists and turns, creating unusual shapes and textures and you come away looking like you were in full control. And you have nothing but fun in the process.

You will paint three or four of the loosest, most unexpected paintings you have ever done. John will demo it all, so no need to be afraid. All supplies are included.

Class minimum: 4

Class maximum: 8

Scholarship Pricing:

This class is supported by the ACWL-Nuveen Scholarship Fund. If you cannot afford the $100 class fee, you may still attend the class for $75 or $50. All we ask is that you be honest about what you can afford! If you CAN afford the fee and want to support others in attending this or other classes, there is also the option to sign up as a ‘supporter’ and pay $125. To see the other pricing options, click ‘view more price options’ under Tickets. ACWL-Nuveen member discounts do not apply to scholarship prices.

About the Instructor:

John lives in suburban Chicago and teaches watercolor painting at the Evanston Art Center. He studied at the American Academy of Art and the Art institute of Chicago. He is a Muskegon native who specializes in landscapes inspired by Lake Michigan, the dunes, the swamps and forests found up and down the West Michigan shore.

ACWL-Nuveen classes are supported in part by CatchMark Technologies, Michigan Arts & Culture Council, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Nuveen Benevolent Trust.
