We will make value sketches and learn ways to draw what we see on canvas, then match the color by mixing three colors to get every color we use. We will make two small studies and a larger finished painting. Perfect beginner course for learning the basics of mixing oils, brushwork, how to paint independently and follow along step-by-step, get individual instruction and group participation.

Watercolor can be used along with or in place of black ink to create casual and fun letterforms and designs. In this class we will cover the basic principles of brush lettering and use both paintbrushes and dip pen nibs to write with.

We will also practice writing on watercolor paper, which is far less smooth than most calligraphy paper and comes with its own set of challenges.
