About this event

Taught by Karen Berstler 4 Mondays We will be learning a variety of watercolor techniques and how to apply them to a painting. During each focused on the mechanics of using the paint. Truly a beginner’s class, no experience necessary. I want to show you how fun and beautiful this medium really is. Material List: Paper: Watercolor block, 140 lb. cold press 100% cotton, 9”x12”. Two brands I recommend are Legion Stonehenge, and Winsor Newton. (They have a medium level price point). Of course, you can use any brand that you choose, as long as those basic criteria are met. Brushes: Short handled brushes- 1” flat brush, no. 10 round, and no. 6 round. There are many brands to choose from, synthetic as well as natural hair. Choose brushes that are specific to watercolor, and are either real sable hair, or synthetic sable hair. Paint: 5 ml tube of a red, blue and yellow. I like Cottman brand from Winsor Newton. That is their student grade paint and very affordable. (If you purchase Cottman, the cadmium red deep, cobalt blue hue, and lemon yellow are good choices.) You can use any brand that you prefer, there are some very good choices out there. You can purchase a starter set if you choose, although that is not necessary for this class. Paint Palette: Something simple that has at least 7 wells for color. Graphite paper, Kneaded eraser, paper towels, tissues, Pencil, Palette knife (if already own), or a butter knife.
