Easy! Watercolor – the 2nd Saturdays

March 9 @ 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM EST
Easy! Watercolor Workshop Series
Join us for an afternoon exploring watercolor painting. During these in-person workshops, you’ll learn how to create watercolor art using a variety of watercolor techniques, tools, and materials. The facilitator will also introduce some sample works by master watercolorists for inspiration and show you how she uses watercolor paintings as sketches and visual journals.

No prior experience is necessary; the projects are designed for all ages and all levels. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult, but please join as a family.

At the end of each class, you will have a small painting or two ready to frame and hang on your wall.

The materials and tools will be provided, however if you prefer to use your own, please do not hesitate to bring them.

You can participate in all the workshops or just one. Workshops will run about 90 minutes but participants can stay to work longer or finish their projects until 5pm.

For: all ages (children under 12 must be accompanied with an adult)
Cost: $5 suggested donation or pay-what-you-can

Dots and Lines
3:00pm to 4:30pm

The facilitator, Tomo Mori will go over the setup, recommended types of paints, brushes, palette and papers. For the first session, we will use simple shapes like dots and lines to experiment how much water to mix with paints, and how to condition the brushes and control the strokes.

Abstract Landscape

In this third workshop, we will start with drawing a horizon in the middle of the page, and by adding colors and shapes, we will compose a landscape-like painting. The colors of choice will naturally reflect your feelings. Tomo will also introduce some works by watercolorists for inspiration.

About the facilitator:

Tomo Mori
Tomo Mori

Tomo Mori is a native of Japan and a West Harlem-based artist who focuses on fiber art installation and collage.

Tomo learned watercolor rigorously under a master watercolorist from age 14 to 15 to enroll herself at Tokyo Metropolitan High School for Music and Fine Art, and she was accepted to the school with a perfect score.

Watercolor is not central to her current art practice; however, she uses the skill to sketch her ideas or keep a visual journal. When she paints watercolor, she finds freedom, lighting her spirit. Perhaps because they are just sketches, or the medium is easy to manage. Through these workshops she wants to share the joy and therapeutic nature of watercolor painting.

Tomo’s work has been exhibited in various venues like Columbia University, Scope Miami, Laundromat Project, Rush Arts Galleries, Governors Island, Newark Museum, and Christie’s. She received a commission from MTA and completed a laminated glass and metal installation in 2018. She participated in the Winter Workspace Residency at Wave Hill in early 2023. She is currently working as a studio artist at the Children’s Art Carnival.
