“Watercolor 101” Watercolor workshop SAC (July 2018)

Watercolor 101 is an engaging 1-day workshop designed to introduce students to the basics of watercolor painting.  This is a novice – beginner level class which focuses on essential watercolor groundwork through a variety of exercises.  There will be short lectures and demonstrations throughout the day with time to practice the demonstrated technique.  We will be working on multiple sample papers instead of working towards one completed painting.

Some of the topics covered in this workshop are:

  • Picking Your Paint:  Understand the differences in watercolor paints and choose what will work best for you.
  • Brush Action:  Learn about the different brush shapes and what they do.  Practice different brush strokes and line work.
  • Proper Paint Application:  How to load your brush and control how much color and/or water is on your brush.
  • Washes:  Unravel the mystery behind creating a flawless wash!
  • Tools:  Familiarize yourself with different tools that can ease the painting process.  Learn how to keep your palette organized and how to keep your paint in control!

Individual attention will be given to each student to help develop their skills and buildup confidence.  After taking this workshop you will walk away with an understanding of various techniques to strengthen your watercolor practice.  This is the first step to creating exciting works of art with enjoyment and ease!

There will be a 45 minute meal break mid-workshop.

WOW!  All the artist-grade QoR brand watercolor paint is included?
How wonderful is that?!

“Where did this color come from?!”

This can be a frustrating question, brought on by that mix of color on the palette: “mud.” This comprehensive workshop will show you how to take the guesswork out of color mixing and gain color confidence! Learn how to organize your palette in order to mix the color you want. Over the course of the workshop you will create a variety of color swatch pages to help you recognize specific color characteristics and color relationships. Demo’s will be given throughout the day on how to create proper mid tones, mutes and tints. Basic color theory will be discussed as well as instruction on how to really “SEE” color. The roles of white and black (and how to mix your own black) will also be covered.

This workshop is extraordinarily helpful to painters of all levels – it is certainly a great color start for beginners as well as an opportunity for advanced painters to hone their skills.
