Experimenting with all that watercolor has to offer!

Watercolor isn't what it used to be! In my new class "Watercolors a class in design" I show you the new possibilities in watercolor. In a world of computer generated perfection, I take you on a journey of exploring your creative side using watercolors in a very handmade way. This is a great class for beginners to intermediate students. We delve into this art form and overcome our fears of trying it. There are so many new and exciting ways of using watercolor to create art. Come join us and find out! Each class runs approx. 45 mins.

VIDEO 1: In our first video we familiarize ourselves with watercolor. I teach the basics of mixing colors using the color wheel. We learn about wet on wet painting, wet on dry and adding other mixed media to the artwork.

VIDEO 2: In our second class we experiment with different ways of painting florals in watercolor. Traditional looking flowers as well as more modern styles. I will explain in detail how to achieve a floral border for future projects. (3 projects presented)

VIDEO 3: Video 3 is all about text, lettering and fonts. We explore designing our own lettering to add a message into our paintings.(3 projects presented)

VIDEO 4: In Video 4 we take the old-fashion stuffiness out of watercolor, and go wild! We experiment with abstracts and multimedia to create modern artwork with watercolors.(3 projects presented)

VIDEO 5: Our last video focuses on pen and ink illustration mixed with watercolor. Different ink techniques are discussed to give tone and interest to your drawings before you add color with watercolor. (3 projects presented)
