Sessions 8
Room 302
Dates June 8 - July 27 (Monday) – 6:30-9:30pm

Watercolor landscapes will introduce the foundations of working with watercolor paints in the studio environment. Watercolor painting makes use of transparent washes and in doing so allows for a bright image. A painting made with watercolor paints uses the white paper as a mirror to reflect and capture a luminous quality. Topics discussed and demonstrated in class are color theory, paint application, painting techniques, and paint manipulation. Each example will incorporate a new color theory lesson and a painting technique. You will be shown how to paint elements found in the landscape such as skies, rural and cosmopolitan environments, trees, and water. Many small quick paintings and fast dry time permits for a wide range of tricks and topics to explore. Almost all of the paintings are guided by a step by step process from beginning to end. Both group and individual attention will aid in your painting’s focus and direction. The beginner and novice painter will be encouraged.
