General Note
Watercolor Painting in the Garden
Yao is a watercolor artist and designer living and working in Columbus, Ohio. While she has been painting and drawing since the age of five, her introduction to watercolor began years ago while trying to explore new mediums and techniques. She fell in love with using watercolor almost immediately and it has since become her signature painting medium. Watercolor provided a visual voice for her creative ideas and inspired her to take the leap and start her own design studio in 2012. Founded in Columbus, Ohio, Yao Cheng Design is a design studio and online shop where Yao creates bright and beautiful art prints, textiles, and paper goods for the home. In this digital age, the beauty of hand-painted designs is often lost. We forget that every brush stroke is individual, and that there is intention and a story behind every mark. Yao's watercolor designs embrace these subtleimperfections -- it's what makes her work truly personal and special! She is best know for her simple, bright and expressive watercolor style. Her designs and products can be found in stores like West Elm, Minted, One Kings Lane and her own online shop. Her work has also been featured in magazines and blogs such as Southern Living, Mollie Makes, Style Me Pretty, and Design Love Fest,among others.
Yao Cheng's rich, energetic style of painting truly comes to life when she paints outdoors. In this plein-air style class, she shares her approach to going outside to paint from life - a skill that will add new dimension to your watercolor practice. Learn how Yao works quickly to combat ever-changing light, and how she simplifies a landscape or a rose in bloom to capture the feeling of the focal point with efficient and bold brush strokes. Join Yao as she paints in various locations at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, celebrating the beauty and simplicity of nature in all its forms.
