    Bonnie Broitzman carries on Karlyn Holman’s love for the spontaneity of watercolors. In this workshop, Bonnie
    encourages you to paint freely, letting go of preconceived subjects.  Her lessons on color and design will help you
    shape abstract images with greater meaning. In this workshop colors will be released from traditional forms in nature
    and you will !nd yourself creating purposeful abstracts truer to the "fluid nature of Watercolor. As a professional art
    instructor, Bonnie has taught both public school and college art.  She and Karlyn Holman did over thirty international
    watercolor workshops together. Having taught many subjects, especially European landscapes, buildings, people and
    animals, Bonnie feels this workshop is closer to the heart of how she playfully creates colorful watercolor paintings in
    her wet-in-wet, non-objective style. You will come away from this experience with colorfully loose watercolors and
    you will have a clearer understanding of the fascinating potentials of completely new forms, when color takes the
    lead.  She also teaches from a sound understanding of composition, which will help you when you return to your
    own studios.

    Class Outline: On the 4 days at sea, we will meet at our studio space and paint. Each 'at-sea' day, class will be from 9:
    00 AM to 4:00 PM for your painting enjoyment

    Bonnie's Bio: I knew early that the beauty of the natural world captured my imagination. In my childhood I spent
    many happy hours riding my pony across rolling hills on my family's farm just north of Albert Lea, MN. After taking
    an early retirement from teaching art for th Austin Public Schools to teach Interantional workshop, I made my
    studio/home on the South Shore of Albert Lea Lake.

    Since 2002 my teaching partner, Karlyn Holmand I, have taught over 30 on-location art adventures in both Europe
    and Central America. I also teach all over the US, expecially Florida and Alaska.

    My workshops are designed to improve both drawing and watercolor painting skills. In particular, I enjoy
    encouraging students by drawing out their personal and creative styles. As a professional artist and teacher, my goal
    is always to organize and create sequential lessons that take students to higher levels of creating art and understanding
    composition and color.

    My under graduate art degree is from North Central College in Naperville, IL and my Master's in Education is from
    Hamline University in St. Paul, MN. My Master's Capstone won Hamline's top award for creativity.

    I find that the fluid nature of watercolor is perfect for exploring the spontaneity of the creative process. My personal
    studio pieces are generally larger and very plafully abstract. I am especially grateful for my years of painting both in
    the lovely countryside here at home and thoroughout the US. However, the beautiful architecture of many European
    cities, especially in Greece, France, Italy and Spain and study at the worlds major musiums has been very influential
    in my development as a global artist.
