As a beginner, you’ll learn traditional transparent watercolor from the ground up, while the intermediate students will be taught more advanced techniques, as well as an introduction to gouache. Both levels will learn sound, step-by-step, transparent watercolor painting techniques and procedures, as well as some tricks-of-the-trade. This class will be split along lines of experience, with beginners studying basics, while the intermediate students work separately. In-class painting demonstrations are a big part of the class and will help you quickly learn the basic and more advanced techniques. Our goal is for you to learn to paint a well, thought out and competent watercolor. Prerequisites are basic drawing skills and a desire to learn to handle watercolor and gouache.
