« back to classes page
This introduction class for beginners will give you a very broad overview of painting in this wonderfully expressive medium. You will start by learning some of the main techniques involved in painting with watercolor. Then, using a limited number of colors, you will learn how to mix and use these colors to paint flowers, fruit, glass, skies, water, trees, rocks, landscapes and simple buildings. Working on small paintings and the step-by-step instruction throughout this class will ensure that you progress very quickly. First, you will watch how to paint each step and then you will paint. Each week you will take home one or two small completed paintings. In this way, you will also learn a lot about how composition works in painting.
