Dive into the world of water media in this 4-hour workshop, exploring the many forms in which watercolors can be found: tubes, pans, pencils, pens, crystals, & powders - you'll even learn about how to make your own!
We'll experiment with different techniques to create various textures, both realistic and abstract. Take a "field trip" next door and get a good look at the different surfaces and mediums used with watercolors. You'll learn what makes a good watercolor brush, the differences in brush shapes and types, and how to maintain your brushes so they will last a lifetime.
Watercolor plays well with many other mediums, and we will delve into its multitude of uses in mixed media art.
