Basic Watercolor Techniques

Remember those first "masterpieces" you made for your parents' refrigerator from simple watercolor paint sets? Who'd guess you could use those same paints to create such beauty as an adult! Awaken your creative spirit under the guidance of our popular instructor as you learn to use watercolors, one of the most expressive paint mediums. Learn about brushes and palettes, paints, washes, glazing and more while you experiment with the design concepts of space, composition and color. All skill levels welcome.
