We will use watercolor as the primary base for creating our design/composition. Pan Pastel, Inktense blocks, and other materials, will be available to allow you to enhance, correct and push the boundaries of this traditional medium. Stencils will also be available to create texture and pattern. This workshop will give participants an opportunity to experiment, explore and push their creative selves to new levels.

Working primarily in watercolor and other watermedia, Karen has won numerous awards in regional and national competitions. Her work is shown in galleries in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and can be viewed on her website at karenlenhart.com.   Karen currently serves as Board President for Artistree Gallery, a 32 member cooperative in Land O’ Lakes, Wisconsin.
