Students in this three day watercolor workshop will learn to mix and mingle color on their paper.

Because Anne teaches painting techniques not drawing, students are asked to create 1/4 – 1/2 sheet size drawings of images that Anne will provide in advance of the workshop.  She will choose images of glass, silver, wood, and figurative.  Students may also use their own like images.

Each day Anne paints along with the students.  All elements of the painting will be covered from composition to backgrounds. The student can expect to go home with a completed painting or all of the elements to complete the painting.

Anne will spend 15 minutes or more each day covering the many other aspects of watercolor from framing to entering shows. The use of the computer and apps on iPads and phones will also be part of the class.


Canadian-born Anne Abgott maintains a studio in Cortez, Florida. She is the author of the No. 1 best-selling book, “Daring Color,” by North Light Publishing. She also has three videos showcasing her work and teaching skills: “Simply Daring Color” by Artist Palette Productions and two videos with Artist Network TV, also a North Light presentation.

Anne is a past president of the Florida Watercolor Society, the Florida SunCoast watercolor society, and currently the president of Art Center Manatee. Anne teaches workshops and judges competitive shows all over the U.S. and Canada. Her events calendar can be found on the Events Calendar page and a gallery of her works can be found in the Galleries sections. Anne’s original paintings and giclee prints can be found at Art Uptown in Sarasota, Florida; AGAMI Artist Guild of Anna Maria on Anne Maria Island; and the Studio on Pine Ave Anna Maria Island.

She moved to Florida in 1998 and began working in watercolor. She is very influenced by the light and color she finds in Florida, and she has honed her skills with many, many hours of painting. She has found an art-rich environment in Florida and feels that the encouragement and friendship of the local artists are a big part of her success. She is an acclaimed mentor and true master teacher. She has been an “art mom” to her students, and many have gone on to become accomplished and award-winning artists themselves. She has conducted over 100 workshops and is in demand as a juror for many exhibitions. Her latest contract is with the Watercolor Art Society-Houston, or WAS-H, for a workshop and judging their upcoming National Show in 2016.
