UW-Green Bay Summer Camps

Explorations in Watercolor

Using artist-grade paints and paper, campers will explore the spontaneous qualities of watercolors and create vibrant paintings using a variety of techniques with instructor, Tricia Mathew. While learning basic types of washes, campers will explore methods for creating texture, ways to preserve white space with different kinds of resists, and how to use positive and negative space to give the illusion of depth.

Resident campers check-in on Sunday, June 24th. Commuter campers check-in on Monday, June 25th.

Instructor: Tricia Matthew

Watercolor artist and Presbyterian minister, Tricia Matthew, fell in love with watercolor while attending a workshop entitled, "Art as Doorway to the Sacret" where she connected with an inner creative spirit longing to find expression in her life. She has studied with many watercolor artists and her work has been exhibited throughout Northeast Wisconsin. Tricia has been teaching watercolor for 14 years and also facilitates workshops in art and spirituality and dream exploration. She lives in Green Bay with her husband Keith and two mischievous cats!
