Share a fun-filled day of exploring this exciting media – Watercolors! Making it behave and taking advantage of its spontaneous nature. Robert Heyer explains that working in the medium does not always produce the look that people may expect. "I don’t paint a photographic-type painting. I do a freer, looser version" he says. Bob enjoys educating people and working with students who are somewhat timid with watercolors. His goal is to show them that with the right tools, it can be a fun and exciting medium.
About the Artist: Robert E. Heyer graduated from the Newark School of Fine & Industrial Art. Bob has developed a national reputation as a painter, teacher and literary contributor to art magazines and has received numerous awards and honors for his artwork. His paintings have appeared in many exhibitions and juried art shows and are held in both private and corporate collections. His paintings have been featured in Watercolor magazine, The Best of Watercolors, International Artist Magazine, American Artist Magazine, Color Magazine and The Collected Best of Watercolor. Heyer currently teaches watercolor painting workshops to advanced, intermediate and beginner students in classrooms throughout N.J.. He is a full member of the Garden State Watercolor Society, a fellow member of the American Artists Professional League, a signature member of the New Jersey Watercolor and the PA Watercolor Societies and a full member of the New Jersey American Artists Professional League. Heyer has also been a recipient of the New Jersey Watercolor Society’s Coveted Silver Medal Award. firstname.lastname@example.org

The other opportunity would be an ON-GOING INSTRUCTIONAL MENTORING SERIES, where the artist will sign up for at least two consecutive single-day sessions.

Kenn has been teaching nationally for over 15 years and has been the acceptance judge and awards judge for many national shows across the country.
