Prerequisite: None
Supplies

Students will get an overview of watercolour materials and methods of application in order to establish a foundation that will eventually lead to an individual style. There will be lots of opportunity for asking questions, for individual instruction, for practicing the concepts of watercolour painting, for gaining confidence, and for learning how to take a subject from idea to completion. This course stresses the importance of training the eye to 'see'. Watercolour is inherently different from other media, so even experienced artists will benefit from this introduction. 

Watercolour II: Developing Techniques and Styles

Instructor: Kelly Goerzen
November 2-3 and 16-17
9am-5pm Saturday and Sunday

Students will get the opportunity to play with the building blocks. There will be lots of review and practice for each individual to strengthen weaknesses, expand skills, problem solve, and gain clarity. You will paint from life, landscape, photographs of your choice, and portrait photos. If possible, there will be an opportunity to paint from a live model or outside. There will always be a subject set up specifically to give opportunity to develop a certain concept or technique, however, there is also opportunity for parts of the course to be self-directed.

There is opportunity for participation in any activities in the other levels, for expanding or focusing your skills, for  pursuing mixed media works, and for trying watercolour on various substrates. There will be ongoing one-on-one review and discussion with the instructor.
