CREATIVE OPPORTUNITIES

 

BEGINNER INTENSIVE

Next Beginner Class in April 2020

Classes on Mondays and Thursdays

13th, 16th, 20th, 23rd, 27th, 30th

Join a very small circle for a unique creative experience, taught by a professional teacher and watercolor painter.  We meet in a beautiful setting at my home in Palo Alto.  

Emphasizing demonstrations and practice, this class covers the basics of what a new painter needs to know:  the elements of  composition , color choices, creating drama, various painting techniques: blending, lifting, dry brush, washes, hard and soft edges, painting wet on wet and wet on dry etc., the many ways to use your brushes, how to care for your brushes, and the sometimes confusing array of materials available on the market.  Bring your questions and prepare to have a wonderful time. Nothing compares  to the support and sharing of a friendly, instructive circle to enhance and motivate your art experience.
