Basic Watercolor Technique

In this week long workshop participants will learn how to control basic washes, use the white of the paper, get the most out of their brushes, and design beautiful paintings with strong focal areas. We will get rid of the fear that goes along with most beginning journeys into watercolor, the fear of losing some precious little item. Let’s enjoy the beautiful liquid fluidity of watercolor as we learn to allow water to move the pigment on the paper with just a nudge from our brush.

Studio Fee: $25
