About this event

4 Mondays, February 19 - March 11, 6:30 - 8:30 pm Beginner Watercolor Taught by Karen Berstler, Ages 18+ Students will be learning a variety of watercolor techniques and how to apply them to a painting. During each class students will practice these techniques first, then have fun putting them into practice. The class is focused on the mechanics of using the paint. Truly a beginner’s class, no experience necessary. Experienced watercolor instructor Karen Berstler will show you how fun and beautiful this medium really is! Basic Supply List:: • Paper: Watercolor block, 140 lb. cold press 100% cotton, 9”x12”. Two brands I recommend are Legion Stonehenge, and New York Central (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- a 1 inch flat brush, no. 10 round, and no. 6 round.
