Field Trip to Watercolor Exhibit

Upper unit students took a field trip to the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe.  Currently, the Art Center has an exhibition of watercolor paintings on display in the gallery.  Students took a guided tour of the exhibit, where a docent gave tips for understanding watercolor paintings and techniques.  They also had the chance to take a workshop with watercolor artist Sandy Nobel.  We learned about negative space, hard and soft edges, geometric and freeform or organic shapes, wet and dry brush and watercolor washes.
