WATERCOLOR 101

$160.00
Join in the FUN with watercolor paints. This class is geared towards the absolute beginner and those wanting a refresher course. We plan to explore the many facets of water-based paints, but also pencils and wc crayons along with a FEW of the hundreds of techniques all to get a comfort level with this beautiful medium.


Supplies: Please purchase or bring the following supplies*: 140 lb. Watercolor paper- a few sheets, a block, or pad to the first class. There will be some samples for you to try before investing in more expensive paper. Watercolor brushes ONLY: please ask at an art store IF you are not sure OR save your receipts in case you need to return them.  1 large wash brush ( flat) , 1 either a #2 or a #3 round brush for detail, 1 - 1/2 oval wash brush,  1 either a #6 or #8 round brush (synthetic ok) Watercolor paints: Bring what you have if you have any tubes that are still workable (not hard) A basic set is perfectly ok. I just would NOT recommend paint from Walmart or a discount store. Coupons for Michaels or Hobby Lobby are great for paint sets.  Otherwise you will start out with the following colors:  Ultramarine blue,  Cadmium or lemon yellow,  Cadmium or quinacridone red,  Indigo,  Burnt Sienna  Olive or Sap green, 1 small tube of White gouache (opaque watercolor) 1 covered or foldable palette (needs a lid) 1 roll of paper towels 1 water container (large yogurt containers work well) 1 roll of artists or masking tape Your sketchbook Pencils: 1 each 2H and HB drawing pencils. *PLEASE NOTE: If you are unsure of what to purchase, bring pencils and your sketchbook to our first session as I will go over all supplies at that time. There will be some paper, brushes and limited paint colors for you at that time until you purchase your own.
