Brush in hand, paper and paint at the ready, you will begin an exploration of the techniques and tools of expression in this ever-surprising medium. This class starts with the basics of the interaction of water and pigment and uses this learning as the foundation for a variety of painting projects. We will cover techniques specific to watercolor, like wet-in-wet painting, using the white of the paper and taking advantage of the medium’s transparency, as well as some of the many aspects of making a successful painting, no matter what the medium. Total beginners, as well as any watercolorist wanting a carefully structured review of the basics, are welcome to join the class.
This class is offered on the Zoom platform. Class sessions will include demos and explanations, plus opportunities for everyone to ask questions. Students will work on assigned projects between class sessions, and there will be a chance for students to share their work and get feedback. In addition, during the class term, students will have access to a variety of visual resources related to each class that they can review as needed. Students will need to acquire supplies for this class.
A kit of supplies is available for purchase online through The Art League’s website, and can be shipped for a fee, or picked up curbside.
