Denver Watercolor Class Teacher Dennis Pendleton

Denver Botanic Gardens Watercolor Workshops

Saturday & Sunday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Summer Months 2017 Dates: June 17 & 18 and July 29 & 30

Please contact me if you’re interested

As we head into the summer and the season of gardening, dig out your easel and paints to join Dennis Pendleton at the Botanic Gardens. Flowers, foliage, and water offer the artist a rainbow of colors and diversity of forms. And this year the magnificent sculptures of Alexander Calder will be on display in the gardens. Monet, the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, once said, “I perhaps owe it to flowers that I became a painter.” The garden gave him freedom to break new ground and explore. Just like Monet, you will be enchanted by the gardens as you learn from Dennis how to compose, identify values, and mix colors. Each day there will be a demonstration, personal instruction, and critiques. Your paintings will blossom as you investigate flowers, trees, water, sunlight, and the sculptures by Alexander Calder. Come see the garden with fresh eyes! Dennis will demonstrate each day and then give personal attention to the students.

The price of the workshop is $100 per weekend

Or, if you can only make one day, the cost is $50 for a single-day Workshop.
