This year’s workshop, connected with the 120th International Works on Paper Exhibition, is conducted by the internationally recognized artist, Stephen Quiller. It will focus on gaining a better understanding of color  and color relationships in water media (including transparent watercolor, gouache, and acrylic), and it crosses all mediums. You will not want to miss this workshop! 

Because of the Covid 19 situation, we will be holding this workshop online through ZOOM. The dates will be the same...October 23-25. The times will differ slightly to accommodate West Coast participants. It will begin each day at 11:00 EST and end at 6:00 Eastern Standard Time. The price will be discounted to $250 for members and $275 for non- members. Before the workshop starts, we will have a ZOOM tutorial to make sure everyone is able to access the workshop. 

Stephen is an engaging, experienced teacher, and we expect this workshop to be educational and interesting.

Stephen Quiller is an internationally known painter who works primarily in water media, monotypes, and intaglio printmaking. He is best known for his innovative approach to water media painting: watercolor, gouache, acrylic, casein and their combinations, and for his use of color. He has written several books, and his research and development of a color wheel for painters -called the “Quiller Wheel” - is used by thousands of painters throughout the world. 

Stephen Quiller has painted in many parts of the world, but he is primarily known for his work done at or near his home in the high mountainous country of southern Colorado. These subjects include beaver ponds, snow shadows, water patterns, wild iris, and mountain rhythms, all capturing the spirit of the San Juan Mountains. 

Stephen is a Signature Member of the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Rocky Mountain National Water Media, and Society for Painters in Acrylic and Casein, among others. His work has been selected for the Gold Medal of Honor in 2014 and the Silver Medal of Honor in 2018 at the American Watercolor Society International Exhibition held at the Salmagundi Club in New York City.
