    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 in water media, and it crosses all mediums. You will not want to miss this workshop! 

    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.
