Watercolor Basics and Beyond

Painting with watercolor is fun and accessible!

In our series of classes in August we will learn basic watercolor techniques –
Wet in wet
Wet on dry
Building up color
Gradient washes

With simple warm-up activities, you’ll begin to understand how watercolor really works and get comfortable with your paints. We will experiment with both transparent and opaque watercolors and explore color and composition inspired by simple nature studies and designs. Special emphasis on individual creative goals and expression will be encouraged.

This class is a drop-in class: free to members and $20 for non-members.
