Price: 
$403.00

People are drawn to watercolors due to their vibrant, delicate, and luminous qualities. Students in this class will work from observation, photographs, and their imaginations to create translucent works using this versatile medium. Students will learn traditional and non-traditional approaches to watercolor painting, including how to transfer an existing drawing into the base for a painting, and how to execute washes and blends. Traditional techniques such as wet on wet, wet on dry, and dry brush will be demonstrated, as well as experimental techniques such as mono print transfer, stamping, salting, splattering, and stenciling. Class time will be spent on demonstrations, lecture, studio time, and critique. / Materials fee of $10 in addition to class tuition. / Open to students ages 16 and above. / View complete policies.
