Jenny Lemons Workshops

Online Workshop 1/6: Watercolor for Beginners

Watercolor is a wonderful art form that is portable and easy!

In this workshop, we will learn all the basics of painting with watercolor including different blending and layering techniques and how to compose an image. We will go over the ins and outs of choosing brushes and styles of watercolor paint (pan vs liquid watercolors), how to use watercolor pencils, and when to use waterproof pens while doing several exercises to get comfortable with the materials. Once everyone is ready, we will practice painting from a digital still life! By the end of class, everyone will create several watercolor paintings and have the confidence to create more!

1. Supply your own materials! For this workshop, you will need a set of watercolors, watercolor paper (any size), some water, and a watercolor paintbrush. (optional: wax resist crayon, paint palette, and table salt)
