Watercolor is unlike any other medium available to artists. It can be used to create the most delicate, spontaneous, and harmonious works of art! In this course, I’ll show you how to utilize the freedoms and restrictions of watercolor to create beautiful art that is expressive, spontaneous, and filled with the unique shimmer of color that watercolor can produce! Emphasis will be placed on students learning to “see” shape, color, composition, and light, and expressing this vision with watercolor. Students will receive both individual and group instruction. For beginners and advanced students.

-1 small watercolor sketchbook (5″x7″ is fine):
Something inexpensive is fine, like Strathmore tape-bound
pads. Students can also use other types like Canson or
Moleskin watercolor sketchbooks, but they are more costly.
-2 or 3 larger watercolor pads (8.5″x11″ or 9″x12″ is good). Again,
inexpensive paper will work fine.
-A few pencils (#2 is good),
-1 set of watercolors (tubes are preferable). It’s best not going
too inexpensive on paints. There are a few good student sets
like Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolors (10 tube set) or
Grumbacher Academy Artists’ Watercolors (10 tube set). If you
already have a set that’s not one of the above, that’s okay too.
-Assorted watercolor brushes. You can start with 3 varied width
rounds (1″ wide, 1/2″ wide and a pointed round). Prices in the
middle range are good. Don’t buy inexpensive brushes as the
hairs will likely fall out.
-Paper towels, masking or blue painter’s tape, small container for water (baby food jar is good)
