This is a 6 week class.

In Andrew Kusmin’s watercolor class, you will explore basic watercolor techniques with emphasis on design, composition, light and how to control watercolor. Andrew will use demonstrations and critiques to move you toward painting your own statements with confidence and unique signature.

 

If you have painted  bring a sample or two of your work . If not, bring photos that illustrate how you hope to paint. We will get to know one another more quickly so Andrew can gear lessons to this particular group’s level and needs.
