Description

STARTS April 9th!

We will explore different techniques such as wet on wet, wet on dry, dry brush and more as we look deeply into texture, shapes, pattern, color, and light contained in beautiful fruits and veggies. Students will use a basic transferring method to draw the image I send, so no drawing experience is necessary, but you will need to print out the images (unless you feel comfortable drawing them yourself with the reference photo to aid you.) You can also use an iPad and a piece of tracing paper if needed. Depending on time and complexity of the object we will either work on 1 or 2 at a time. A basic understanding of wet on wet and wet on dry with watercolor is helpful to have for this class.

This is an adult course, but teens are welcome to participate as well. Children under 13 may accompany an adult taking the course.
