Description

In an intimate setting with plenty of one-on-one instruction, this class focuses on simple, basic techniques with emphasis on drawing, brushwork, color theory and mixing skills. Each class will feature demonstrations with a specific concept in mind (eg. wet-into-wet, dry brush, etc.) so that students can see how the technique is successfully applied. Students will develop skill in drawing with a brush, understand the importance of values and their role in creating a successful painting, learn to control paint based on the amount of water and type of brush used, as well as how to create strokes that are bold and confident. All levels welcome.

Materials Needed: Winsor Newton Watercolor paints (artist grade) in the following colors: Winsor blue, Winsor red, Winsor yellow, ultramarine, alizarin crimson, raw sienna; pointed round watercolor brushes in size 6, 10 and 12 (or whatever you have that's close); 140# cold press watercolor paper; palette for mixing; container for water; paper towels.
