This is a four-week introduction to watercolor painting, beginning with a demonstration and discussion of materials on the first day, along with some simple exercises to get you comfortable with the tools. During the second class meeting we will advance to drawing simple shapes and objects to paint and incorporate horizon line, composition and value contrasts, along with flat wash, dry brush, wet-on-wet, spatter and scratch / scrub techniques. On the third day we will paint the subject of your choice in gray values only using the techniques learned and will use this image to paint a final piece in color on day four.

Please view the supply list to learn what materials to bring to class. If you would like to take this class but find that the cost of materials is prohibitive, you can arrange to use shared materials by sending an email at least one week before the first class meeting to jill@sonomacommunitycenter.org.
