"Masi applies watercolor in a thick and juicy manner, giving his subjects a startling boldness. Learn how attention to detail and unusual perspective make for poetic, moody work with strong textural qualities. His presentation will show the materials that he uses, (paints, paper, palettes, brushes, etc.) his set-up, and how he lays down colors (body color and glazes).

Masi will demonstrate for the first 1-1/2 hours each day, allowing students to watch and ask questions, the remainder of the day will be one-to one instruction. Masi aims to provide an insight into the process of painting; he prefers watercolor for even though it is a thin medium, it organically allows expression of the most delicate subjects. However, through his modern approach he discovered that watercolor can also be used in a thick manner, and it therefore can express the heaviest subjects imaginable.

Antonio Masi, is the elected President of the American Watercolor Society and has had many feature articles to his credit, including: The Artist’s Magazine, PBS – “Sunday Arts”, NBC-TV “Weekend Today in New York”. Fordham University Press published a book on his paintings titled: “New York’s Golden Age of Bridges”, with essays by Joan Marans Dim.
