WATERCOLOR BASICS FOR ADULTS

Watercolor painting is not to be feared!

It's a very easy and accessible medium that you can take with you anywhere. 

In this introductory class, we will explore techniques such as dry brush, layering, salt, paint lifting, and more. We’ll then use what we’ve learned and apply it all to painting a simple still life. 

Watercolor can be used alone, to compliment pen and ink, pencil drawings, or be accompanied by colored pencil, marker, crayon. Don’t be afraid! This is a no stress class!

WEDNESDAY 6:30 PM-8:30 PM
