Charleston, South Carolina
Sketching & Watercolor: On Location
a destination retreat...
Our Muse: Charleston, South Carolina
The most glorious time of year in Charleston: Spring… with gardens bursting with color! The oldest city in South Carolina, Charleston has a rich heritage as well as vibrant arts and cultural scene. Long and winding cobblestone streets, elegant well preserved mansions; century old churches; art galleries and charming boutiques. A culinary mecca for Southern food done right too and just minutes away from the cosmopolitan charms of downtown Charleston are well preserved plantations and more beautiful gardens where you’ll loose yourself in time among the moss-covered oaks and blooming azaleas. The pages of your journals awash with color, architecture and beautiful gardens a treasure to cherish for years to come!
Sketching & Watercolor on Location:
Want to learn to draw and paint what you see? Want to create an illustrated journal page of your day, your garden, and your travels? Your days will be spent drawing and painting in a relaxed, fun environment with a group of like-minded travelers. Each day, we’ll go to a charming locale and I will demonstrate drawing and painting with watercolor. She’ll gently guide beginners (yes, I can teach you to draw) and experienced alike to see and capture the details and memories in a straightforward, intuitive approach with pen and watercolor. You’ll create a set of watercolor journal pages as unique as your own handwriting. You’ll bring home a priceless collection of small watercolors depicting your experiences and memories of your trip.

Description: A rubber stamp of your own design is a wonderful addition to an artist’s personal ‘tool box.’ Create a simple, graphic design to be used again and again on paper, cloth or any surface. Jane will guide you to select an flower image from a copyright free source, change it, simplify it and then, once it’s your own unique creation, carve the design into a small printmaking block. You’ll use this skill again and again!

Using Sketching and Watercolor to Create a Beautiful Journal of Your Life
Today highly experienced artist and art-journaling teacher Jane LaFazio will create a relaxed, fun, supportive, non-judgmental environment to inspire us to create an authentic artistic record of how we see the world. Using a straightforward and intuitive approach to drawing and watercolor, she will equip us with the skills and confidence we need to create an incredible memory journal of our life. In this workshop, geared to beginners but open to all levels, Jane will show us how to: take the time to carefully observe an object before starting to draw it; pick and mix the right colors to capture the right shade or feeling; find our own drawing and painting unique style; and much more.
