Friday Evening Class

In this course we will explore watercolor techniques including shading, depth, adding details, and more. A basic knowledge of wet on wet and wet on dry methods of painting with WC is helpful. The focus of this class will be on creating finishing touches to add visual interest to the objects we paint.

If you love painting with watercolor – this is the class for you! For beginners and intermediate painters alike – this course will give you the skills you need to add beautiful details, shading, depth, and more to your paintings. We will be focusing on painting objects found in nature using both photos for reference and an occasional found object. This class is the perfect follow up to the Beginners Watercolor Classes I have been teaching on Zoom (but it’s not necessary to have as a pre-requisite.) Please join us for some really sweet community connection and creativity!

This is an adult course, but teens are welcome to participate as well. Children under 18 may accompany an adult taking the course.

Basic Supply List:

Here’s a video I made about the supplies I suggest:

YOU CAN USE ANY BRAND OF THE FOLLOWING YOU WOULD LIKE:

Watercolor set

White watercolor pan or tube (if your set doesn’t have one)

Three brushes (if you only get one please get a size 10 or 12)

Watercolor paper (in the form of the block) would recommend the FABRIANO one single sheets work too.

2 jars for water

white absorbent cotton fabric or paper towels for cleaning brushes

MY SUGGESTIONS:

Watercolor Paper

I prefer is a block of paper (pad with glued together sheets of paper is best for watercolor I recommend the Fabriano one if you can swing it) If you only have single sheets or a pad it will work too.
