This course will focus on interpreting a still life in transparent watercolor.  Each week we will work from a new set up and focus on interpreting it with watercolor.  Some of the areas that will be covered are: aspects of good color composition,  developing your own unique way of interpreting your subject as well as the basics of conveying volume on a flat surface. This class is designed for the beginner in watercolor as well as the more experienced.  It is not intended as a class for the more advanced painter.  

Masks are required at all times while inside the Art Center.
