A 12 week course from February 3rd to April 20th. This watercolor class will help you learn watercolor painting through the experience of painting textures such as wood grain, glass, metal, fruits and vegetables, plants, water, seashells and rocks, a woven texture (basket), clouds, and animal fur or feathers or scales. This class can be a great learning experience for the beginner or a good practice for the artist who has some experience painting and wants to discover some new challenges and skills. It is very helpful if the student knows basic sketching skills. At the end of the series of classes, you should feel confident to create any painting which will include any of or a variety of these textures.

What you will need to bring:

  • A small (i.e. 9”x12” watercolor paper tablet), 25 sheets or more.

  • A variety of paintbrushes including a large and small round brush, a large and small flat brush, a line brush (small for detail)

  • A combination of red, yellow and blue paints. You can create your own greens, greys and browns using red, yellow and blue. You are also welcome to use a watercolor pan set, however, in the beginning you will be mixing your own colors using only red, yellow and blue. 

  • Paper Towel

  • Cup for water

  • A variety of sketch pencils with hard and soft lead

  • Eraser

  • Plastic or porcelain pallet tray (preferably with a lid)

Fun attitude
