This is a 2-day workshop for beginners.

Have you been intrigued with watercolor and wondered what it would take to get started in this luminous medium? Designed for those with little or no knowledge of watercolor, this workshop will cover the basic tools and techniques of the medium. Emphasis will be placed on a variety of exercises that will familiarize students with washes, mixing color, understanding value. and using special techniques. The exercises will be compiled in a watercolor notebook that can be used as a resource for future watercolor exploration. The emphasis will be on exercises in using watercolor, not on creating a finished masterpiece!
