Watercolor: The Beginning II

Mondays, Mar 1 – Mar 22
11:30 am
2:00 pm

This class is for beginners who just completed Session I as well as new students who want to explore the world of watercolor painting in a comfortable, supportive environment. Various methods will be explored including painting wet on a dry surface, wet on a wet page, dry brush, splatter, and how a flat wash and gradation are done. Techniques will include salt, plastic wrap, scoring with a wooden stick, masking fluid, natural sponges and incorporating watercolor pencils into the paintings. Find a supply list here.

The instructor will suggest ideas for subjects with photographic reference or an object can be brought from home. We will begin with a simple single still life, and then proceed to composition and placement on the page. 

This class will take place in MAM’s Leir Hall. In the event that the museum must close, the class will continue online via Zoom.
