The Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society (GCWS) is hosting the Christopher Leeper watercolor workshop this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I'll be learning from Chris, along with 19 other members, each day. He's a wonderful landscape artist and I hope to learn some good things to help me with watercolor landscapes. Since it's not my area at all, I hope to soak up as much as I can.
As the Program Chair for the GCWS, I contacted Chris and then made all the arrangements for the workshop (a big job for a first time workshop organizer). I'm hoping it's a great learning experience for the 20 members who are in the workshop this weekend. The workshop is filled but Chris has agreed to return in April for an encore workshop. GCWS members get first choice to be in that one, but then we'll open it to the public (if there is room).
I'll take photos each day and should have some to share. I have a lot more to do to get ready, including buying the coffee, filters, cups, etc. and stopping to buy pastries each morning. I hope the group appreciates the work done to make this happen.
This is the first workshop the GCWS has hosted in its 10-year history.
