About this Class

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 


  • For students ages 12-16.
  • Registration closes April 26.
  • When you register your youth, enter their name in the Youth's Name field and enter the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email." All reminders and important information will go to this email.

Students will create a sample sheet of watercolor techniques as well as two finished watercolor paintings.


Students can bring materials from home to experiment with, but we will have materials for them to use.
