Elements & Principles of Design Workshop- March 11
Elements and Principles of Design-ONLINE
General Public $25
The Elements and Principles of Design are the foundation used to create a work of art. The “Elements” are the building blocks that actually make up a painting. The “Principles” are the ways we use the Elements of Design to create a successful work of art. A background in these design foundations will help you create your best works of art. Deanna Weinholtz has a strong background in design and will pull the concepts together in this introductory class so you will have a working understanding to apply to your artwork. In order to maintain the safest environment possible, class will be offered via Zoom Meeting, a free online audio-visual platform.
All adult classes and workshops are recorded and are available for one week after the class. Therefore, if you miss the class, you will have one week to catch up on the class at your convenience. Review our class information and procedures for more information.
Please review the Supply List before the start of class.
Deanna Weinholtz is a watermedia artist from Western New York who is best known for her luminous landscapes and seascapes in watercolor and acrylic. Her creations have been displayed in numerous exhibitions and galleries and have won national and regional awards. Many of her creations are featured in the homes of her collectors.
Deanna’s inspiration comes from travels throughout the United States, Canada and Italy. The Kawartha Lakes in Canada is one of her favorite subjects and is frequently featured in her paintings. Observing spectacular sunsets over the water and waves crashing has inspired many of her paintings. Deanna uses large brushes, rags, throwing paint and many other techniques to create spontaneous, intuitive paintings that are a beautiful mix of representational abstract.

Her other artistic endeavors included designing and dressmaking of wedding gowns, until her passion for painting pulled her back to full time professional fine art. She shares her knowledge and love of painting through teaching and demos.
