Watermedia for All: Acrylic & Watercolor

Experience a delicious week of intense watermedia painting. Explore acrylic and watercolor separately and combined. Components of the class include no-failure exercises and experiments, playing with regular and iridescent paints, and combining watercolor and acrylic on paper. You will be encouraged to focus on your favorite water medium, if you choose. You will painlessly explore color theory; expand wet, dry, and glazing techniques; and experience the joy of a week of laughter and learning. Whether you’re a seasoned artist or haven’t held a brush since kindergarten, you will surely blossom in this workshop!
