Learn how to create beautiful paintings using your imagination and your watercolor palette! While this class is designed for the beginner, who has been working in watercolor for less than 3 years, the emphasis is on learning the basics through practice as an ongoing process. The former student will have the opportunity to develop more confidence by perfecting their current skill level, while the more experienced student will explore their personal style. Class exercises include: color theory, color wheel, color mixing, pigment properties, various watercolor techniques, and choosing materials. Learn how, when, and why in choosing various: watercolor papers, brushes, pigments, and techniques to achieve the results you want in your paintings. Demonstrations, group critiques, and independent exercises will further enhance your learning experience. No previous experience is necessary.
