Color Theory I (Watercolor)
Sat, July 11. 10 AM - 1 PM

In this popular class you will gain a strong understanding of color mixing, and how to use a limited palette to achieve a wide range of luscious, luminous colors.

Color Theory II (Watercolor)
Sat, July 25. 10 AM - 1 PM

Expand on your knowledge of color as we explore how to control the three components of color to achieve perfect color mixes every time: from the greens you find in nature, to realistic skin tones, to muddy colors when you actually want them!

Problem Solving in Drawing
Sundays, 10 AM - 1 PM, July 12, July 26, August 9, August 23

Four one-time workshops on Zoom Live for you to choose from or attend more than one. These single workshops are the perfect opportunity for artists and art students to share works in progress. If you are having problems with proportion, values or composition this is a great way to figure out what and why it's happening, then how to fix it. Drawings and paintings are welcome, since many "painting problems" actually stem from drawing problems. Online Class Limit of 6 students per session to maximize constructive critique time.

Watercolor Techniques & Tools
Sat, Aug 1. 10 AM - 1 PM

If you've been wanting to try out watercolor, or you are still new to it and get frustrated, this is the perfect introductory class for you. Learn the most common techniques, plus a few fun extra ones, as we talk about everything watercolor. We'll decode paints, types of paper, and all the different kinds of brushes and other tools successful watercolorists use to work with this difficult but wonderful medium. Class materials, a supply list and the Zoom Link will be emailed after students register.
