Service Description

If you have ever been curious about watercolor painting, this is the class to take! In this beginners class, you will learn all things watercolor. Students will become familiar with different brands of paint, paper and brushes while having the opportunity to test them out! By learning about the differences, students will gain confidence when purchasing their own supplies and getting started. There will also be numerous techniques taught during this class, such as: wet on wet, wet on dry, washes, layering, color mixing, values, glazing, lifting and more. Additional techniques like using salt, paper towel and inks will be taught to show you how you can add texture and interest to your paintings. Once the techniques are taught, Christel will spend one on one time with students to answer individual questions and guide learning. * If you want to learn how to create your own palette, please bring a tin travel palette with 12 pans. The can be found on Amazon for about $10. 16+ All materials provided
