Students will paint with traditional watercolors and experiment with a variety of water media techniques. Working with fun subjects and nature's colors, we will use these to influence our projects. Instructor will provide some inspirational, unique items and students are encouraged to bring their own inspirations as well. Individual support will be given to further each student's watercolor path. There is a materials list for this class.
