About the Event

Artist/Instructor: Gloria Clifford

Dates: Thursdays, March 7 – April 4, 2024

Time: 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

This class is all about how to create beautiful watercolors without always using traditional methods. Some knowledge of watercolor painting and/or acrylic painting is helpful but is NOT required. Although this is not an abstract painting class, abstract ways of thinking and application of materials is encouraged. This class is especially for those who wish to experiment and/or for those who are interested in having an experience with watercolors using “out of the box” painting methods. Collage and several techniques not normally seen within a traditional watercolor painting will be a part of this class experience. Come ready to have FUN, FUN, FUN!

Supplies Needed For This Class: Fine Art supplies can be ordered on-line from CheapJoes.com OR DickBlick.com *Watercolor Paint Brands Suggested: American Journey, Daniel Smith; Windsor Newton; or Holbein *PLEASE NOTE, PROFESSIONAL GRADE PAINTS are preferable. However, you are welcome to bring watercolors you may already have for this class if desired.

Additionally, a fine “liner” brush and a “rigger” brush is also really helpful for detailing, etc. Synthetic watercolor brushes are completely acceptable for this class. *If you care to purchase really nice Kolinsky Sable Synthetic watercolor brushes at an affordable price, I recommend KINGART brushes which must be ordered on line. You can find these brushes at www.Kingartco.com. I recommend the “Finesse” Set of 8 brushes. They are fabulous and the set contains everything you will ever need!
