Watercolor lll - Advanced Beginners - ONLINE

This watercolor class is an exciting step in your watercolor journey! It will be co-taught by our two artist educators, Judy and Deanna. Judy Kosinski will start you out in the first two weeks continuing painting exercises to advance your skills, then as you progress, Deanna Weinholtz will take you through the last two classes. During the last two weeks you will be building on your skills in wet on wet watercolor to create a beautiful sky with clouds. This is a perfect class to help lead you into our Intermediate Watercolor level lV.  Completion of Watercolor l and ll or a good level of experience painting with watercolor is required. All Watercolor lll - Advanced Beginners classes contain the same content. Unless you wish to repeat the material, we recommend you sign up for Watercolor lV - Intermediate Expression.

Painting Outside the Lines

Tuesdays, 6:30 - 8:30 pm - 4 week class

 May 25, June 1, 8, 15

This class will have everyone looking at their creative side. We will be creating an abstract background with paints, salt, rubber stamps, palette knives, gauze, you name it wherever your imagination takes you. Then we will be adding a floral painting on top of the background. 

Applying Color Theory

Tuesdays, 6:30 - 8:30 pm - 4 week class

July 6, 13, 20, 27

A background in color theory will help you be successful in your paintings and eliminate a lot of the frustration that comes with mixing the wrong colors together and creating "mud". If you have some basic knowledge in color theory this class will reinforce what you have learned and take you through the next steps of applying those skills. For those of you that are starting out with color theory, I will introduce you to the concepts of mixing colors, color temperature, what colors mix well together and what ones don't and why. We will then apply all of these skills in exercises you will want to keep in your studio

for reference time and time again.
