Come enjoy the beauty and calm of watercolor painting!
In this very beginner friendly workshop you’ll learn about the basics of mixing and painting with watercolors. We’ll focus on creating a range of colors using the three primaries of red, yellow, and blue and techniques to apply the paint to paper. You’ll then spend the remainder of class painting an illustration of your choice from a selection of floral, fauna, and abstract images.
No painting experience is required and all materials will be provided.
This workshop is open to ages 10 and over.
