Beginning Watercolor


Adult / Art -
Adult Winter/Spring 2024

Watercolor is a relatively easy and inexpensive way to get started as a painter. Geared toward those with no or little prior experience, we'll be learning color theory (values, mixing), special effects you can achieve, and the basics of paints and brushes. Preprinted watercolor paper templates will be provided by the instructor.
