Friday Evening Class MARCH

STARTS MARCH 5th!

We will explore different techniques such as wet on wet, wet on dry, dry brush and more as we look deeply into atmospheric perspective, cloud formations, tree masses, the texture of land, water, and sky and do our best to capture their beauty onto paper. Students will use a basic transferring method to draw the image 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. We will be working on small pieces of paper so that we have the chance to finish each painting during the time allotted in each class. 

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

COST: By Donation (students have been paying anywhere from $5 – $50 per class which comes out to $20-$200 for the whole course. Please pay what matches your financial means and needs. No on turned away due to lack of funds.

DATES: We will meet 4 Fridays March 5, 12, 19, 26 – 5pm-7pm

Pacific Time

Each class will be recorded that day and the link to view it will be sent along with the notes from the class each week. Recorded classes are only available to those who register for the class so we can keep a safe and nurturing space for those to express themselves.

*** THIS IS THE BEST Paper: (any watercolor paper will do: here’s a suggestion for a block – the pages are glued together so it won’t buckle as much when you paint on it)
