You can do it! This course is designed specifically as an introduction for the very beginning student. The basics of watercolor painting will be covered, including ways to put the paint onto paper, various supplies and materials, and composition and values. Students will complete several simple paintings, keep a reference journal, and will be asked to work on projects outside the classroom. In class, the students share their artwork and learn to improve through encouragement, gentle critiques, and advice. For the first class, students should bring any watercolors supplies they have on hand. The instructor will provide a complete list of supplies (estimated $50-$70) needed for the remaining classes, but please do not purchase supplies prior to the first class.
