During the first four sessions, students will learn basic watercolor techniques by demonstration and lecturing, using a step-by-step approach to completing a watercolor. After basic tools are covered, students will work from a simple still life setup to create an artwork that stresses value, patterns and design. Plenty of individual attention provided!
