During a three-day workshop Saturday to Monday, June 29 to July 1, the Delaware Watercolor Society will feature Walt Bartman, an extraordinary art educator, as he explores the dynamics of creating color, relationships of color and how color occupies space.

Bartman has more than 30 years of experience teaching painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and photography. Specializing in landscape and figure painting, he is known as one of Maryland's finest painting instructors and has received numerous awards and recognition at the national and local levels for promoting art through education.

Bartman has a BFA in art education from the University of Maryland and an MFA in painting and art history from American University in Washington, D.C. He also studied art in Belgium and the Netherlands under a Fulbright grant.

Still life and landscape will be the focal subjects and, weather depending, some time may be spent en plein air. Participants will use standard watercolor supplies and an optional small set of gouache paints to explore painting on brown or black paper.

The workshop is from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday through Monday, at the Glade clubhouse, 16 Glade Farm Drive, Rehoboth Beach. The cost is $200 for DWS members, $240 for nonmembers. Workshop size is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Early registration is recommended.
