WHITMAN4: "Watercolor Explorations" (Youth ages 12-18) with Alisha B. Whitman

Ever wondered how to get watercolors to do what you want them to do? Come learn foundational skills such as color mixing, brush techniques, composition, water balance, and other tricks while I help you pursue your personal artistic voice. For youth ages 12-18

*For more information/questions, please contact Alisha at:


*The following supplies are my recommendations. You do not have to have the exact supplies or brands I use - if you already have materials, please bring them! My goal is to help you learn HOW to paint, not just replicate what I've done. Even if you're a beginner, however, it is important to have professional-quality paints and good paper. It really makes a tremendous difference! You can save money buying student options for the other supplies, but don't scrimp on the paints or paper. 

My recommendations:

- Watercolor palette with a lid (preferably with wells for paint and space for mixing)

- At least 8x10" watercolor paper, 140 lb, cold press. I recommend Arches, preferably a block for convenience
  (if you don't have a block, bring artist's tape and a board)

- Smaller, cheaper watercolor paper for practice work. I recommend Strathmore Vision Watercolor pad 6x9"

- Watercolor paint brushes - I recommend getting a flat brush, either 3/4" or 1", Rounds sizes 10, 6 or 4, 2

- Scrub brush or 1/4" Willow's Blender Velvetouch brush (Jack Richeson Grey Matters Water Media Brush Set is a great option)
- Watercolor paints in tubes  - You could get by with a warm and cool red, yellow, and two blue (like the Daniel Smith Essential Mixing set) but I also like to have secondary colors, and some neutrals like burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre, and Indigo. You don't need white or black watercolor but a white gouache is useful.

- Light sketching pencil

- Kneadable eraser

- Paper or cloth towel

- Water container
