Watercolor Immersion: Under the Sea, Pet Portrait and Landscape

Sean P Callahan Under the Sea watercolor painting

Sean P Callahan brings his watercolor expertise from Key West, Florida to San Diego for a three-day workshop for students of all levels. Learn the very basics while producing undersea paintings, pet portraits and landscapes, all in a very comfortable, stress-free environment. Explore watercolor washes, monochromatic painting, color choices, composition, how to approach drawing issues, use of salt and spray bottles to create textures and movement, how to paint lifelike eyes in animals by layering colors and lifting and capturing a pet’s personality, dry brush, and wet washes, how to paint skies, textures on buildings, and grasses.

With demonstrations, assisted painting and critiques, this unique hands-on experience is not to be missed. Be encouraged to jump off the dock as you and other students take this watercolor journey together. This is meant to be a fun and comfortable experience that provides understanding of watercolor and the confidence to paint beyond the class. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned painter, Sean tailors the class to you and your comfort level. Pre-registration required. Materials list provided upon registration.

This just in from Alan Ziter, Executive Director of the NTC Foundation:

I want to let you know about some of the new art and performances at Friday Night Liberty this Friday at NTC at Liberty Station’s Arts and Culture District. There’s something for nerds, hipsters, literary types, and of course for art lovers and families. Indoors, outdoors and all around our campus. And it’s all free!

 June 6, 2014 Friday Night Liberty

I hope you can make it out. Weve strived to make Friday Night Liberty at NTC an evening where multiple art forms collide, and San Diegans can have access to artist, dance performances and community groups for free! Here are some of the happenings:

  • We have over 30 artist studios, 2 museums and numerous galleries all open and free. View Art! Buy Art! Make Art!
  • Bravo School Of Art • Figurative Inspiration Group: FIG • Drawings and Paintings of the Human Figure. Fourteen award-winning artists gather each Tuesday at Bravo School of Art to draw and paint from an eclectic range of clothed models. Meeting weekly for almost a decade, FIG members take a unique approach to figure drawing. Models are asked to take relaxed positions, as they would in everyday settings with attitudes to tell a story. Meet the artists and view the art from this ongoing collaboration. Barracks 19, 2690 Historic Decatur Road, Studio 206
  • The Market Street Group will have their first public exhibition at NTC, featuring work by their 20+ artist collaborative. Address: Barracks 14, 2770 Historic Decatur Road

  • Malashock Dance’s students and students from Guitars in the Classroom will be having a collaborative performance on the Barracks 17 Plaza under the new program banner “Liberty Kids.”  Address: Barracks 17 Plaza,  2710 Historic Decatur Road
  • FX Dojo is hosting a Ninja Art Show with over 30 artists participating. This show is one night only! Here is more information via Facebook.  Address: Building 202, 2825 Dewey Road
  • So Say We All will perform from 7PM-9PM at the Barracks 17 Event Center.  So Say We All has been invited to stage The VAMP Showcase as a featured event!  It’s another version of their ridiculously popular VAMP at Whistle Stop. Address: Barracks 17,  2710 Historic Decatur Road
