Adult Fall 2020 - Summer 2021
This class is for students who have learned the basic watercolor skills and are ready to take the next step in developing their own work and style. This class develops the student's confidence in developing original paintings from photographs. Students will work on compositional design, creating an area of focus, value planning and color harmony. Students will receive individual coaching to help them realize their visions and work at their own pace. Bring your regular watercolor materials and ideas (photos) for the first painting.
