This introductory workshop will provide the basics for beginner watercolorists, and those with some prior experience who feel they need a refresher” course before moving on to the next level. Some drawing experience is helpful but not essential. The workshop will include instructional lecture time with ample “hands on” instructor assistance.

  • Create a basic color palette
  • Learn about the different types of brushes and how to use them to achieve the desired effect
  • Understand the various types of watercolor paper
  • Learn the importance of basic drawing skills
  • Mix colors to achieve the desired outcome
  • Understand the color wheel and how to use analogous and complementary colors to enhance a painting
  • Understand the concept of “the rule of thirds” and finding a “focal point”
  • Produce a simple 11×14” watercolor painting
  • Develop an understanding of the unique properties of watercolor versus other painting mediums
