Watercolor/Perspective Workshop
with Joe Burger

When:  Wednesday, February 21, 2024, 10 AM - 4 PM            

Where: Manchester Church of Christ, Fellowship Hall, 595 Tolland Turnpike, Manchester CT  

Cost: $100 for MAA members, $125 Non-members  (Limit of 20 students)


Some familiarity with the watercolor medium is recommended.


The subject of the workshop will be a seaside shack on pilings, a second structure up high on a rocky hill, and other things one might find walking through a nice place like Peggy’s Cove on a sunny day. Special attention will be given to correct perspective, reflections, and shadows. Our objective is to finish the day with a decent painting and a better appreciation of the underlying drawing. A full-size sketch will be made available before the workshop.

Artist Bio:


After Joe retired from an engineering career in 2009, he began to study art. He always liked to draw, so it seemed like a natural thing to do. He began with drawing classes, and spent considerable time with the colored pencil medium, but eventually moved to his favorite medium, watercolor. Joe learned through adult education classes and then through private lessons and workshops. He has won numerous awards in local exhibits and is an active member of several art organizations. He has conducted workshops on understanding perspective, reflections, shadows, and the like, to help other artists on the road to better paintings. Joe especially likes the challenge of commissioned work. He has taught watercolor
for Arts Center East, in person and on Zoom, and is currently an instructor at the Windsor
Locks Senior Center.
