Class Description

What is watercolor?

Watercolor is a unique way to creatively represent dreams, illusions, emotions, and bright feelings using water-soluble pigments. Using a cup of water and a few paints, you can create incredible pieces of art. But, if you don’t know what you are doing, you could end up with a soggy mess.

The basics are very simple to learn and with practice can be easily grasped. There is a lot that can be controlled with practice, and the rest (the happy accidents) is what makes watercolor so interesting.

In this six-week class, you will learn about the personality of watercolor and the simple techniques needed to paint with confidence. You will learn everything about what you need to get started, including

  • Paper
  • Watercolors
  • Different Wash Techniques
  • How to Layer
  • How to Blend
  • Working Light to Dark
  • Masking Fluid
  • Other Tips and Tricks

By the end of the class, you will have the skills needed to create charming watercolor pieces of your own. Your instructor, Cheryl, will share techniques she has accumulated over the years, so every watercolor enthusiast can learn something, but beginners will benefit the most.

Leave your cares at the door and dive in! This is your chance to start dabbling in the art of watercolor magic!
