Watercolor painting is a great way to exercise your brain. Planning and thinking before painting eliminates many of the problems that plague watercolor. Even when you think you are done, there are techniques you can use to improve the final presentation. Critiquing is a great way to analyze what you like and what you don’t like. Classmates’ fresh eyes add wonderful nuances to your work. Lots of individual instruction will be available, so if you are new to the medium, don’t worry.

Required materials: You will need 140lb cold press paper, paint, brushes, palette, water container and paper towels. Please let me know if you need me to supply any of these items. All supplies will be available for purchase the first week or bring your own. Estimated costs are: Brush $10; Paper $5; Paint $6; palette $8. If you have a ceramic plate, you can use that for palette. Water bowl is also needed, as well as paper towels.
