LORI SOKOLUK ~ Watercolour + Mixed Media = WOW!

About the workshop

Media: mixed media

Levels: all levels; no painting or drawing experience required

This 5-day workshop will revolutionize your watercolors with mixed media. Incorporate inks, crayons, and other media into watercolor to create bold, expressive work. Exploration will begin with exposure to basic watercolor techniques, then quickly branch out to explore mixed-media, line work, resists, and collage.

Lori creates a friendly, supportive environment where your creativity can unfold. This course utilizes a joyful creative process that starts with playful experimentation, then uses intuition and intention to guide the progress of your artwork.

In addition to developing fundamental watercolor techniques, we will focus on composition, color mixing and design, and on fine-tuning to bring a piece to completion. Students will also learn how to mount and seal watercolors without glass, and will take home up to two mounted pieces of artwork ready for hanging.

No drawing or painting experience required. Bring your enthusiasm and willingness to try new approaches to your work.

About the artist

Lori Sokoluk’s bold organic abstracts and loose evocative realism capture just enough detail to launch the mind and heart.

Intention and intuition play equally important roles in Lori’s creative process. Paint, collage, and various mixed media layer to build a sense of detail in her highly abstracted works. Intuition guides, and discernment hones the finished pieces. A personal vocabulary of images tells the story of her experience, and triggers the viewer to bring their own meaning to the work.

Lori's enthusiasm and work have been inspiring art students for over a decade. Lori studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She has taught at the Boston Architectural Centre and Massachusetts College of Art, and continues to teach throughout the Lower Mainland and the US.
