Painting What's Around Us: Watercolor in Quarantine
May 24, 31, June 7 & 14
This four-session class will help you create a watercolor still life based on items around you, translating simple things – e.g., fruits or vegetables, a favorite vase, an old shoe, gardening tools or blooms from your garden – into an effective composition. We’ll learn how to arrange and paint objects into an effective watercolor composition.
Critical painting topics, such as value, color, and composition, will be built into class demonstrations to help you create a vibrant watercolor.
The class will be organized into:
- Four sessions of 1.5 hours each that include Mary’s teaching and demonstrations, with time allowed for student questions
- Homework assignments: exercises and paintings-in-progress that you can post on a private Facebook page for Mary’s feedback
- Access to the instructor during the four weeks -- via the Facebook page or email -- for questions and help
Recommended for beginners or early intermediate watercolorists.
Registration Deadline: May 18, 2020 | $120 / $110 Members (This includes all four of the one-hour sessions)
