April 2 - May 7$200
Fridays 10:00am-12 noon | 6 Weekly Sessions
[Class size limited to 7 for distancing. Masks are required until in distanced painting space]
The Spring Session will be both indoor and plein air (outdoors). Initial classes will be inside and then when the weather is good, students will be painting on the Village Green or on the back porch, if weather is inclement.
The instructor’s hands-on approach will help students learn to capture the transparent quality of watercolor in the painting of landscapes and still life. Working with a limited palette and carefully planning strokes and tonality, students will master the economical use of brush and line to produce the needed effect without the fear of overworking the painting and will learn how to achieve crisp, clear color and create atmospheric effects. This class is for students with basic knowledge of watercolor painting.
