Beginning Watercolor with Christine Witte, September 6–October 4



Discover watercolor painting—it's mysteries, it's idiosyncrasies, it's characteristics, it's luminosity. You will learn about watercolor tools of the trade—the best brushes to use, paints, what to look for in paper, paper weights and finishes, what type of palette will work best for you. Explore what makes watercolor paints different, how to prepare your paper for painting your composition. You will learn about mixing paint—why blue and yellow don't always make green, when to use transparent and opaque watercolors, mixing on paper, glazing and more.  We will go over watercolor techniques—brush handling, other ways to apply paint, wet on wet, dry brush, using salt and other methods to add texture. 

Students are encouraged to bring reference photos, sketches, etc for composing their own painting design. Some photos will be provided to use for this purpose.
