Service Description

In this 6 week watercolor class, you will begin to see and capture your surroundings in a new way. We will intimately explore light and texture on surfaces and translate our experience into loose gestural watercolors. Class will be positive and encouraging -- a growth experience. You will be encouraged to keep a sketchbook and challenge yourself at home. Drawing skills are not required, but learning to draw will also improve your painting skills. Students will receive instruction in composition, contrast and color. We will work with using the white of the paper through the use of negative painting and use of miskit/liquid frisket. We will go over the use of brushes and effects. We will work from life and reference photographs. Students will learn to see like an artist, paint negative spaces, do value studies while getting to know their materials. Adventures in Watercolor will be held for 6 weeks starting on Thursday, October 5th from 1 PM to 3 PM. This class has a following and will fill up quickly! Register today!
