Sending your artwork out to be matted can be expensive so why not learn how to mat artwork yourself? We provide the mat board, backing board and clear plastic wrap as well as give a demonstration and hands-on assistance in matting your own artwork during this workshop. Please bring two works on paper you would like to learn how to mat.

This workshop will be held on the opening weekend of the Kansas Watercolor Society Exhibition, which was juried by Soon Y. Warren.

It will consist of demonstrations, a step-by-step group exercise and individual assistance throughout the two days. Soon will provide a reference photo for the group exercise and concentrate on technique, color theory, composition and color values. Participants will learn glazing and washing techniques to create a luminous underpainting. Students also will learn the importance of color relationships and how to utilize light or dark values to capture the sparkle of glass.
