Color in the Taos Landscape: Monoprint & Painting Workshop
Study color and contrast in the Taos landscape with artist Suzanne Wiggin. She will guide you in the creation of monoprints. Using plexiglass plates and a limited palate of inks, you will create a personal “monoprint sketchbook” of the breathtaking landscape surrounding the Doel Reed Center for the Arts. Once you have your sketchbook, you will explore the range of colors in the in the landscape through oil painting. You will come away with a deeper understanding of color in the Taos landscape.
Suzanne Wiggin was raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, where her family has been for generations. Forty years ago she moved to Taos, New Mexico, as a teenager. Taos Valley has had a profound impact on her artistic vision. The land with its storms and clear light is the focus of her paintings and monotypes. Her education includes a Masters of Fine Arts from Boston University and a Bachelor of Art Education from the University of New Mexico. Her work has been exhibited widely and is represented by Winterowd Fine Art of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
