We will do a different painting in each class. The paintings chosen will each feature a different watercolor technique which is very important for students to learn as they get started learning watercolors. We will learn the basics in watercolor technique, from washes to blending of colors, and the different materials used in watercolor painting. Step-by-step instruction is provided. The instructor will demonstrate a technique, then students will paint that technique.
