In this class we will be covering color theory, color mixing, color themes, and the basic techniques for using watercolors. Why so much color? Well, because, waterCOLORS. When you are using this medium, you are learning to see in the language of color; everything else is secondary.

Even if you think your drawing skills stop at ugly stick-figures, you can still create beautiful watercolor work. Once you learn how to mix and manipulate this medium, it will create gorgeous effects that will make you look like an instant pro. (Warning: you will be tempted to post photos on your social media to brag about how good you are at painting.)

If you think you’re already bomb at watercolor painting - reviewing color theory and fun techniques never hurt an experienced artist. I learned some cool new stuff researching this class that I’m excited to try out with you guys!

You are not required to bring any materials. But, if you do have some watercolor brushes sitting around at home, feel free to bring them along. And, if you happen to have a set of watercolors, bring those along as well.
