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

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 be confident to make more!
