Watercolor - Hybrid

Spring II 2021 / Painting and Drawing

Not your grandmother’s watercolor class. You may have tried watercolor in the past - or avoided trying it?  But teacher Robby Schlesinger guarantees that you will love this class.  Learn to control the water, build up color while retaining the highlight/luminosity, keep the paint where you want it, avoid muddy colors and fix mistakes (yes, it’s possible!).  Learn washes, scumbling, sponging, dropping-in, pointillism, and sgraffito and more.  This is a great class for everyone who wants to paint. It’s also a great class for calligraphers and crafters who will learn easy techniques  for painting watercolor backgrounds in your work. 

Hybrid - This 8 week class will meet via Zoom initially. Planning to meet in person for the latter half of the session.
