Watercolor Weekends: Try Before You Buy!

Always wanted to try watercolor painting, but don’t want to invest in the materials? This is your chance!

This workshop encourages beginners or those who have always wanted to try the amazing medium of watercolor! We provide the materials so you don’t have to make an investment. We will cover styles, techniques, color, supplies, and even some “tricks” in watercolor that are fun to include in the painting process. We will work on small-scale paintings so
that you can go home with a finished piece (or more!). Step-by-step demonstrations followed by individual instruction will keep things accessible to you. Learn more about materials so that you can make informed choices should you pursue buying some. Whether you consider yourself an artist or not, working with watercolors can be an extremely gratifying experience that will likely leave you wanting more.

This is the first of four classes in the Watercolor Weekends à La Carte series, an ongoing program of one-day workshops. Watercolor, more than other painting mediums, is very technique-based. It is also a transparent medium, which sets it apart from other types of paint. These workshops will focus on color, core techniques, and understanding the tricks and timing to get the most out of each application. Demonstrations and individual studies will inform your painting process. These workshops are for all levels and more experienced painters will be given activities that challenge them where they’re at. Choose the classes that best fit your needs and schedule.
