Capture nature’s beautiful landscapes with watercolors. Art Specialist Heather Engle will be demonstrating how to control water and pigment levels to explore variations in color and light. Other topics covered include: painting techniques such as shading and the elements of landscape painting.
Participants please bring watercolor paper, a painting surface (easel, clipboard, or sturdy piece of cardboard), water container, and masking tape. Bring your own watercolor pigments (minimum of red, yellow, blue, black, and brown) so you get comfortable with your own materials. You’ll likely want to work more when you get home!
We will be working outdoors weather permitting. Prepare accordingly with hat, sunscreen, and water bottle. We do have basic watercolor pigments & brushes available if needed.
