    We are pleased to have nationally recognized artist April Rimpo. She is a prize-winning artist, teacher, demonstrator, juror, and Signature member of six National Watercolor Societies, the International Society of Acrylic Painters, and the International Society of Experimental Artists.  Her acrylic and watercolor paintings have appeared in three North Light Best of Acrylic books and in their Best of Watercolor book, Splash 19. She had a painting selected for Splash 21 which is slated for publication in 2020.

    In this two day workshop we’ll focus on creating a painting on Aquabord. This surface has some properties like working on watercolor paper but other properties that lean toward working on more slick surfaces.

    Learn how to work with watercolor washes to produce small vibrant paintings. Reference materials will be supplied.  BWS will supply two Aquabord panels and a frame.

    There will be a step by-step instruction demonstrations, and one-on-one interaction during the class. Knowledge of basic watercolor is helpful. 


    Provided by BWS:

    • Ampersand Aquabord Panel - 8'' x 8'', 7/8'' Cradled (For workshop painting)
    • Ampersand Aquabord Panel - 5'' x 7'', 1/8'' (For practicing color blends and layering)
    • Ampersand Floater Frame - 8'' x 8'' for a 7/8'' deep panel, black wood with 3/8” bold edge face

    As time permits April will demonstrate installing your work in the frame.


    Supply List:

    Brushes: You will need soft brushes either natural hair or natural and synthetic blend brushes to reduce lifting earlier layers of paint.

    #10 or #12 Round (April uses round brushes from Loew-Cornell (7020-10) Ultra Round- Golden Taklon or Princeton Aqua Elite Professional Watercolor Brushes)

    #6 or #8 Round

    #2 Script Liner or Lizard Lick brush (Cheap Joes - CJLL-6)

    ¼” to ½” soft flat wash brush that can hold a lot of paint
    (April uses Cheap Joe’s Dream Catcher CJDC-25 or CJDC-50)

    2” – 4” hake or other soft brush for wetting the Aquabord

    A water mister may be helpful, but not essential.

    Paint: You can use whatever watercolors you have, but recommend you bring the 15ml or larger tube watercolor. We'll start with paint from the tube (not dry paint in your palette)

    This is a basic set of tube colors April uses. Those colors with an asterisk (*) will be essential for the painting.

    * Cobalt Blue

    * Manganese Blue Hue (Daniel Smith (D.S.)) and/or Cerulean Blue - looking for granulation

    BWS is pleased to have Glen Kessler, an internationally collected and awarded artist as well as the founder of The Compass Atelier in Rockville, MD.

    Kessler has a MFA from New York Academy of Art and a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. His works have graced the cover of ‘Professional Artist Magazine’ and in ‘The Artists' Magazine’ among other publications.

    He has work in the public collections of Prince Charles, Amazon Web Services, Ford's Theater, Capital One Bank, Dominion Bank, as well as hundreds of private collections around the world. He is a 2-time recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Grant for Outstanding Figurative Art, a Prince of Wales Fellow, and a Maryland State Arts Council Grant awardee.

    He is also a life-long teacher, having taught at Maryland Institute College of Art, George Washington University, George Mason University, and others.

    In 2013 he founded The Compass Atelier in Rockville, MD in order to teach a cohesive curriculum of artistic study of his own design. The school and its unique curriculum are proving to be a game-changer taking students, many of whom had little to no prior experience, to a professional practice in just 3 years of part-time study. Recent graduates have gone on to earn top prizes, regularly sell their work, and gain gallery representation.

    "Color Theory Made Clear"

    This workshop will make color theory and color mixing the strongest part of your art. Using the innovative Painter’s Compass Color Wheel we will learn how to make color measurable and quantifiable.

    Learn how to work with watercolor washes to produce small vibrant paintings. Reference materials will be supplied.  Glenn will supply --

    With 18 years experience, both locally and internationally and over 100 awards, in 2018 Anne was represented in two International shows in Canada and Greece. Anne is a past president of the Florida Watercolor Society, the Florida SunCoast watercolor society, and Art Center Manatee.

    Anne has achieved Signature status in seven National Watercolor Societies, not including the holy grail for watercolorists: AWS and NWS. She has won over 100 awards from competitive shows both locally and nationally. Her recent awards have been in National Watercolor Society, Southwest Watercolor Society, San Diego Watercolor Society.

    She began taking images, some of which were very old, and manipulated them to come up with exciting results that put the fire back into her painting. These images had a “wow” factor that was missing from her compositions and paintings.

    She has spent a couple of years working with her enhanced images and with opaque watercolors, and these paintings have been successful for her in competitions and sales. Mission watercolors have some beautiful tube grays, and she began experimenting by adding transparent watercolor to tint the tube grays, along with mixing paints by using opaque white watercolor.

    With 18 years experience, both locally and internationally and over 100 awards, in 2018 Anne was represented in two International shows in Canada and Greece. Anne is a past president of the Florida Watercolor Society, the Florida SunCoast watercolor society, and Art Center Manatee.

    Anne has achieved Signature status in seven National Watercolor Societies, not including the holy grail for watercolorists: AWS and NWS. She has won over 100 awards from competitive shows both locally and nationally. Her recent awards have been in National Watercolor Society, Southwest Watercolor Society, San Diego Watercolor Society.

    She began taking images, some of which were very old, and manipulated them to come up with exciting results that put the fire back into her painting. These images had a “wow” factor that was missing from her compositions and paintings.

    She has spent a couple of years working with her enhanced images and with opaque watercolors, and these paintings have been successful for her in competitions and sales. Mission watercolors have some beautiful tube grays, and she began experimenting by adding transparent watercolor to tint the tube grays, along with mixing paints by using opaque white watercolor.
