What's Included

Instructor: Thomas Needham This class will be like a trip to the seashore. The instructor will provide students with shells, driftwood, and other objects found on the beach. Students will set up their own summer still-life to paint. Take your imagination to the seashore as you prepare your summer still-life with available shells, driftwood. Self-confidence will grow in the application of layering color on color to achieve a desired result. Students will develop an understanding of the medium and how to use basic techniques to achieve various textures in watercolor. A step-by-step instructional approach will provide the foundation needed to achieve exciting results in this medium. * A supply list will be provided after registration
