The Arts

If you’ve been wanting to explore watercolor painting or return to it, this is your class. You’ll learn basic color theory, how to use various brushes, understanding paint/water ratios and paint mixing, and how to start and work through a painting.  Each week you’ll be given a painting project to do on your own to help reinforce and build your skills

Learn drawing fundamentals and the ability to really "see" what you are drawing through line, form, value, composition and various techniques for creating more realistic drawings. Live demos and drawing projects will help you build your drawing skills. The class includes recorded video modules created by the instructor to help you master the techniques being covered. You can even schedule a one-on-one with instructor between classes.
