This is a class for adults and mature teens who desire to learn watercolor, are talented or have had some art background, either in drawing or painting. Techniques from contemporary artists as well as old masters such as Andrew Wyeth may have a daily tip. Watercolor is a vast subject with enormous art history. Everything cannot be covered in one day so signing up for the “series” is recommended. We do allow “one-day” classes also. Previous drawing or watercolor classes recommended. One day “Rental Kits” are available as a convenience for $5. Art supply list online www.MindyNewman.org.
Class led by artist Mindy Newman.
