Watercolor Fundamentals

Saturday August 19, 10am-4pm

Presented by Emily Falco

Watercolor is often described as an unforgiving and difficult medium, but some of its merits are its portability, quickness to dry, transparency, and spontaneity. This class is designed for both beginners and those familiar with watercolor painting, and will teach techniques for planning your painting, color theory, and more. You’ll get the most out of this class if you have some experience in drawing from life, but it is not necessary. Most importantly, we’ll have fun exploring ways you can take your watercolor painting to a more sophisticated level.

Recommended supplies list is here.
