Winter Watercolor Studio Class

January 30 - February 27


In these classes learn or review the steps of using transparent watercolor such as building up color from light to dark, painting flat washes, graded washes, layering transparent washes, and wet on wet techniques. Going from light to dark as you preserve the lights and highlights is key to watercolor technique.  This approach will be discussed at length as well as studying excellent examples of this way of working.  There will be still life setups to work from and photo referencing.  Participants work at their own levels with individual attention given as needed. As the classes progress everyone will learn how to compose their own still life setups using a four-part grid to transfer them onto watercolor paper. All levels are welcome but beginning contour drawing is highly recommended for this class.  Painting in watercolor takes practice and patience.  Prepare yourself to relax and have fun as you experience the joy of watercolor creativity. Material list available.

Dates: Thursdays 1/30; 2/6, 2/13, 2/20, 2/27. Makeup 3/5
