Retreat to the Country
with Mark Kohler
Three-Day one-on-one instruction
with Mark at Blackbird Farm near
An award winning watercolorist, Mark Kohler travels throughout the American West, compiling photos of working cowboys and inter-preting this disappearing American icon in his soulful paintings.
Mark has given workshops across the US, and now for the first time will offer one-on-one instruction at Blackbird Farm just outside Fayetteville, Texas.
Whether you are a beginner, a professional, or have never touched a brush in your life, Mark can teach you to paint in watercolor. You will enjoy the process while learning the skills Mark practices himself, in the quiet, peaceful rural setting.
This workshop includes individual instruction and Mark s own tips on design, composition, and how to control your paint. The classes are fun, laid back, and full of techniques that make his paintings so sought after. You ll learn tips he uses everyday.
Mark says,"You and I will work from the same image and paint together.
I will teach you the techniques that I use, emphasize good drawing, mixing
the right colors and then putting them in the right places. We ll have fun...
Joey, born in Beaumont, Texas has remained in the area most of his life. In 1976, he received a BFA from Lamar University in graphic design, spending many extra hours of life drawing, painting and watercolor under the tutelage of Jerry Newman. Newman profoundly influenced how he would think, see and translate images to paper and canvas. Blazek continued to draw from these skills throughout his career in graphic design as a creative director, photographer and illustrator.
