Schedule of 2022 Workshops
Saturday April 30, 9:30 – 3:30 with a lunch Break. Watercolor workshop by David Becker. Bring a friend. Addison Park District, 120 East Oak Street, Addison.
David will be teaching watercolor from beginning to end; starting with how to take total control of the medium, leading to a well-composed watercolor. Subject matter will be supplied. David’s teaching method takes all students on a paint-a-long style of teaching while trying a variety of different surfaces and techniques. This class is designed to benefit all levels of painters. Teaching students to conquer the medium of watercolor is David’s goal and he takes great pride in making sure every student leaves with the ability to control the paint while trying all sorts of new materials.
Since 1979, David has spent all of his artistic life and career in the city of Chicago. After studying at The American Academy of Art in Chicago, Becker went into illustrating for a major advertising agency J. Walter Thompson and later for Foote Cone and Belding. He also started teaching around the country, right out of school, but always found time for his favorite ambition, creating fine art paintings.
David is the author of Watercolor Composition Made Easy , and How to Sketch with Watercolor. He has had two
different articles published in International Artist Magazine and in Watercolor Magic. David Becker has reached
signature status in the Transparent Watercolor Society of America , and has won numerous awards for his work
from watercolor societies around the country.
