In this 6-week series, this class will offer an introduction to watercolor techniques used in the art of watercolor painting.  This class is designed for those new to the art of watercolor painting but all are welcome. We will focus on the foundational skills such as washes, dry brush and  wet into wet painting.  We will also focus on training the eye to be sensitive to different values as you paint starting with simple still lifes.

Masks may be required in the classroom depending on community spread. Mask requirements may be subject to change. If you are not willing to wear a mask, please do not sign up for our adult classes.
