Spend an exciting weekend exploring the lively, transparent medium of watercolor—even if you have never picked up a paintbrush before.
In a safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere, we learn about our materials, and then let ourselves go as we rediscover the unfettered creative spirit of our childhood and explore how paint acts on wet paper.
During the weekend, we observe the effects the colors have on each other through a series of color-mixing adventures that give us an understanding of how to use color in future painting endeavors. We conclude with drawing and painting from life—and we learn that, yes, in fact, we all can do it!
Enrollment is limited for this program; register early. Ann Kristin Lindsay is also teaching Painting Flowers in Watercolor.
