Take watercolor painting to a whole new level with this experimental class for all skill levels.
Adding plastic wrap, salt, and rubbing alcohol to paint? Yes! In this class, students will master the elusive medium of watercolor as we progress from experimentation studies to a complete composition. We will cover the unique abilities of this fun and challenging art medium. Students will learn to stretch watercolor paper like a canvas and explore more than a dozen watercolor painting techniques.
"You have to know how to use the accident, how to recognize it, how to control it." - Helen Frankenthaler
Students can bring materials from home to experiment with, but we will have materials for them to use.
