Introduction to Watercolor
Learn to paint in watercolor. We’ll introduce you to the tools of the trade: pigment, paper, brushes, and palette. Then we’ll learn how to lay out your supplies and hold your brushes. We’ll move on to color mixing, composition and application methods. Exercises, painting from life and demonstrations will help you learn how to use tone to develop a sense of space. Enjoy one-on-one guidance as you work on the piece of your choice.
- Students will receive an informational booklet; all other supplies must be purchased or brought to class from the materials list below.
