Watercolor is best served up in splashy, spontaneous strokes. It yearns to be transparent and luminous. Make time for yourself each week to chase your passion! Working in watercolor can be exhilarating as secrets to good painting are revealed. You’ll be amazed at how fast you are producing splashy watercolor paintings and how stimulating it is to make art!
Your instructor offers easy-to-understand explanations providing an insider-look at technique. These clear explanations will have you painting in no time at all. We’ll be painting a variety of subject matter including still life set-ups, people, and landscapes.
Instruction is structured around watching, listening, and doing! The course includes illustrated handouts with insightful explanations to supplement the class lesson.
