More about Fred

Frederick C. Graff is one of the foremost watercolor instructors of today. His continuous growth and development in his pursuit of watercolor has enabled him to be a leading artist and educator in the field of watercolor painting.

"When an artist understands the basic principles and elements of design, the subject matter becomes unlimited. The selection of my subject matter is determined by my immediate response to the subject and its surrounding environment. It is essential that I go beyond the level of just recording facts. It is my intent to convey a spontaneous response in an unrestricted yet semi-controlled manner. This approach to watercolor painting lends itself to a unique and unpredictable experience. This state of uncertainty compels me to further explore the world of watercolor."

He is a "Signature Member" of the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, and Transparent Watercolor Society of America. He has been conducting watercolor workshops for the past thirty-five years and maintains a studio and gallery in his hometown of Medina, Ohio. His diverse approach to watercolor painting has continued to attract individual and corporate collectors, and he has been accepted into numerous top national, state, and regional exhibits.
