Print & Book Arts Studio

Book Arts


Explore the exciting, surprising medium of watercolor. You'll learn the technical side of painting like color temperatures, color mixing, composition, and the planning of strong paintings. You'll also be experimenting with special watercolor skills and techniques, brought to life through fun exercises and studies. And you'll learn how to  translate watercolor painting into visual journaling, which is a wonderful way to let watercolor flow and let your experience mix with it. Explore the internal voice of being an artist, get in touch with your current experience, and then express that in painting. This is about learning solid techniques and have fun — to experience freedom, exploration, and discovery!

Sheri Worth

Sheri enjoys being a traveling watercolor artist and landscape painter. When the studio calls, she works in mixed media with a focus on the beauty of the landscape. A lifelong love of art and excitement at trying new media have led her to work and study with myriad instructors in many disciplines. She's currently working in mixed media, pen and ink, and watercolor, finding joy in everyday scenes. Watercolor has been a lifelong companion. She graduated in 1977 with a bachelor of fine arts in sculpture from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. She has taught workshops in Steamboat Springs, Telluride, and Grand Junction. Sheri moved to Bainbridge Island in 2019 after splitting her time between Telluride and Moab, Utah.
"I believe there is a magic mix of skill and heart that combine to create paintings that arrest the viewer. When we can communicate our inner being through our art — that is the essence of being an artist." - S. Worth
