Join the Minnesota Watercolor Society for an immersive experience in creative process and dynamic design with Pat Dews. You will see Pat demo her approach, work on specific projects and learn how to bring your own works to finished pieces.

Dews’ creates experimental works in watermedia on paper and canvas. She paints the essence of nature where shapes and textures of flowers, rocks, water, crumbled walls, rusty objects are translated into richly layered paint surfaces. Dews skillfully juggles organic and geometric forms, transparent and opaque paint - all held together by a basic abstract underlying shape. Collage is often integrated. It is this intricate dance, rendered in strong color and value which produces her award-winning paintings. When Pat paints, it is a lively, fascinating performance where less becomes more.

The American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society and numerous others have recognized Pat’s work with distinctive awards and she has earned a reputation as an enthusiastic and popular instructor.

A student comment: Pat Dews is a champion!!! I have never participated in a workshop such as this where the artist painted, taught principles and elements of painting as she did!!! She shared every thought intentionally and unabashedly. The most authentic, helpful and engaging experience in art workshops that I think I have ever experienced!
