Class Description

Painting in Watercolor

Enrich yourself artistically with a workshop designed to allow you to explore the art of painting in watercolor. This is an affordable and accessible medium that you can participate in with little investment and you don’t need a studio at home to create in watercolors. Through the guidance of Jennie’s individualized approach, students will work on independent projects that are focused on drawing or painting or both, based on each student’s interest. Beginner students will be guided through basic painting and drawing processes that include perception, values, contrast, and paint handling, while more advanced students will develop a direction in their work, honing media and exploring composition and subject matter. Students will be encouraged to work at their own pace.
