Watercolor Studio (Ages 16+) [Online Class]

Watercolor Studio (Ages 16+) [Online Class]
With so many aspects of painting to juggle (composition, color, values), an artist can get lost trying to create a cohesive image. With strong light, many of these elements fall into place naturally. In this class, we will observe the various levels of lighting, and how the right balance can make a painting "sing." We will experiment with light's counterpart, darkness, too. We will study master painters of all mediums, and note their use of light and dark to make an image come to life.

Tech Requirements: Wifi, a computer or other device with a built in camera, and a Zoom account. Students will receive an email with instructions prior to the first class. 

Materials: Please bring a pencil, any watercolor set you may have, and watercolor paper.
