If you are drawn to expressive line work and lively colors and you’re keen to create images inspired by your everyday life experiences, this could be the class for you. Working with ink and watercolor on paper, you will engage in a series of ‘see & try’ experiences – brief demos followed by hands-on exercises and assignments. You will build a set of skills that will get you started capturing vignettes wherever you find them - from your own backyard to a street café halfway around the world.
