Watercolor class starting October 2!


 
My portable watercolor set-up.
Need a little post-Hurricane-Irma art therapy?  We are all recovering, cleaning, pruning, and hauling debris after Hurricane Irma passed over us some time ago.  Some of us more than others, but ALL of us have affected in some way.  Bear with us as we recover our Internet and phone services!  Hopefully, most of us have power and water now.
Join me for a seven-week series of classes starting Monday, October 2nd at the Naples Botanical Garden, for an introduction to the magical world of watercolor painting.  This class is perfect for the beginning painter or as a refresher or practice time for more experienced artists.  A list of suggested materials will be available for those who are new to this media, but feel free to bring your favorite supplies.  I will have materials available for our first class, so no worries if you have no supplies yet.

Each class features an introduction to basic techniques or concepts, then moves into play-time as we explore and practice what we’ve learned.  We’ll embrace the idea of process and experiential learning as we paint indoors from subjects at hand, with the possibility of painting outdoors at some point.  
Here is our class line-up for Mondays 9 am to 12 pm:
10-02-17:  Class 1:  Watercolor basics: materials, color charts, and local color

10-09-17:  Class 2:  Watercolor  building blocks: washes and mixes

10-16-17:  Class 3:   Watercolor control, local color practice, and edges

10-23-17:  Class 4:  Color wheels and a bit of color theory

10-30-17:  Class 5:  Glazing, negative painting, and dimension

11-06-17:  Class 6:  Composition and telling a story

11-13-17:  Class 7:   Special effects playtime!
