INTRODUCTION TO WATERCOLOR/ 4 PART SERIES (Class location, Hillsboro Library 54 Third St. Hillsboro, WV) suitable for kids accompanied by adults
April 29, 2024
This four-session course is designed for the student who knows very little about watercolor but always wanted to try. It is also designed for the student who tried and really got frustrated. And it is designed for the artist who paints in acrylics or another medium and wants to try something different. And it is early in the year, so you have all summer to practice without wasting time fumbling about wondering how, using bad paints and waiting for art items to arrive in the mail.
The artist within us wants to share our vision, our values, our insight. But our urge to create with paint needs skill, information and some hints along the way to help us
We teach the medium through instruction and hands on. There are a great number of tricks to setting up for this pursuit as well as for getting a good result. The instructor provides guidance about what a beginning watercolor artist needs and how to avoid the pitfalls she fell into. The instructor will also review what to buy, how to buy it and, the most fun, how to use it.
All materials are provided by the instructor and are included in the registration fee.
Adults, kids over 16. Younger kids need to be accompanied by an adult student. No toddlers or pre schoolers.
