Beginning Landscape Watercolor Painting

Date - 04/02/16
10:00 am - 1:00 pm

With the green hillsides covered in wildflowers, the late spring is an inspiring season in the Bay Area. Learn how to capture nature’s beautiful landscapes with watercolors at this workshop hosted by Guadalupe River Park Conservancy. Art Specialist Heather Engle will show participants how to control water and pigment levels to explore variations in color and light. Other topics covered include primary colors, secondary colors, watercolor techniques, and the elements of landscape painting. We do have beginner’s watercolor pigments and brushes but participants could bring their own watercolor pigments (red, yellow, blue, black, and brown), brushes, water container, watercolor paper, a painting surface (easel, clipboard, or sturdy piece of cardboard) and masking tape.


Ages: 8+ with parent chaperone participation
$15/members, $20/non-members
