About the Event

In this new class offering the emphasis will cover how to creatively use watercolor in several new, nontraditional ways. Some knowledge of watercolor painting and/or acrylic painting is helpful, but not required. Although this is not an abstract painting class, abstract ways of thinking and application of materials will be taught and encouraged. This class is for those who wish to experiment and for those who want to learn out of the box, new painting methods. The methods of Collage and the use of additional materials not normally used within a watercolor painting will be a part of this class experience.
