Watercolor Techniques

All skill levels

Offered through Valley Art Center

Instructor: Carol Triplett
1pm – 3pm Wednesdays
January 15 – February 19

6 week Course – $120.00

In this class we will explore several techniques of doing watercolor and use some of them in a painting. You will learn about various papers and why some work and some don’t. WARNING: We will use up several pages of paper as we experiment. So don’t be stingy
with your paper.

My goal is to break down the idea of “it’s supposed to look this way” to “that’s how I see it.”. In other words to express the way you see and feel about the subject, whether it be realistic, impressionistic, or abstract. It is after all your painting and you can paint the same
scene more than once.
