  • Lasts 4 to 5 days • Local workshops (Within 30 miles) 3 - 5 days
  • Includes a daily demonstration by Mort 
  • Involves the participant in active painting. Mort works directly with participants teaching them the techniques that he uses to create his internationally acclaimed art. He focuses upon composition, color, brush techniques, and use of gesso and other materials.
  • Provides an opportunity for critique. Participants have the opportunity to bring in a one painting that is in progress for a critique.  Mort and the participant will work together to apply some of the newly learned techniques.
  • Helps artists apply new skills, learn about the materials that Mort uses and stretch their creativity.

Experience the Wonders of Water-Based Media

This is an experimental workshop allowing abstract design to dictate the subject matter. This is usually done with a combination of Watercolor, Acrylic, Gouache and Gesso (white). This workshop will include painting figures, wildlife, and florals.

Mort will demo each morning and will work with students in the afternoon. He may request to paint directly on student’s work with their approval. Mort will be giving a slide presentation to explain his process. Each student may bring three pieces of their own work for class critique.

February 25 - March 1, 2019

Workshop • Scottsdale Artists School, Scottsdale, Arizona

•  5 day Water-base Media 

Contact; Trudy S. Hays:

In this painting workshop you will experience how Mort creates and designs his signature compositions by incorporating the use of gesso and gouache with watercolor and acrylic. The first day of the course will begin with a slide presentation of Mort’s work and each day will include demonstrations.  The main objective is to get excited about your painting.  See that you can have fun and open yourself to new ways to use water base medium and incorporate techniques that can be used to correct mistakes or use mistakes to improve your composition. Learn to see how the designing of your paintings is an ongoing process and “see” and experience the different aspects of color and design. Topics for discussions: the use of gouache as an opaque medium, breaking the transparent watercolor rules, identifying what works and expanding on it, creating wet and loose backgrounds and using your own photographs as reference. Finished paintings are not one of our goals.
