Watercolor allows us to be expressive, contemplative, and creative—all in the same time frame and on the same sheet of paper. It is magic with water, pigment, and a brush. In this 2-session class, we are going to cover basic drawing and painting techniques using a still life as our reference. We get to look with the eyes of our heart as we draw what we see, and use paint to capture the objects.

This class will sharpen your eye and your drawing skills, and freshen up painting techniques. You can paint big or small, detailed or loose. The goal is to feel the colour and shapes, the textures and the magic of time with life and art. It is a joy and gift to give yourself.

There will be a homework component to practice the skills learned. You can work at whatever size is comfortable for you.

Supply needed for class:

Bring your own artist-quality watercolor paints and brushes, watercolor paper of any size, a board, pencil, and eraser (no Artist Loft or dollar store pans, please!)
