Class Description

“Expressive Painting and Drawing in Watercolor” takes place in June only.

Watercolor is a lively medium, it changes as it dries. To utilize the fluidity and work with the medium it’s essential to understand why and how. Going back to basics helps any levels to fine-tune their skills and to attain the results they want. Students will be working from references (photos, sketch, artwork) of their choice. The instructor will work individually and also demonstrate common basic techniques.
