This course is for beginners in watercolor painting. We will use videos, demonstrations and hands-on projects to learn the basics of watercolor. At the end of the course, beginners will have acquired basic watercolor supplies and had the opportunity to learn how to: 1) apply various kinds of washes; 2) mix specific colors and values of colors; 3) apply various techniques for textural effects and 4) plan and complete watercolor paintings. Students are urged to attend the weekly “Watercolor Workshop” course to further hone their skills.
