Instructor:  Robert Benson

Location: Room 210

Designed especially for beginners but valuable to artists of all levels, this two-session in-person class will develop your knowledge and skills in watercolor floral still life painting. During the first session we will create a painting in greyscale values only, and the second session we will work in color. For both sessions the instructor will provide a prepared sheet of watercolor paper with the image of a floral study outlined in pencil — no need to worry about your drawing ability! Instructor will begin the class with a brief demonstration for guidance.

Learn how to establish light and shadow areas, explore how watercolor paint works on the paper, and discuss watercolor techniques most commonly used. Registration for this class will close on March 19.

Please view the supply list to learn what to bring to the first class meeting.
