All materials are provided for this workshop.
Instructor: Jody Holbert
In this one-day workshop, adult students will receive an introduction to watercolor painting, or a chance to refresh skills, experiment with watercolor processes, and complete a watercolor painting. Participants will be introduced to a variety of techniques; including wet-on-wet, dry brush, salt resist, blooming, layering, scumbling, and wash. After experimentation with color, process, brushwork, and composition, students will complete a painting.
Informal, informative, and inspiring hands-on art classes with changing themes provide a unique focus for adult learners of all ages and abilities to engage in Museum-based art education and creative exploration. Permanent collections balanced with special exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of art forms. Opportunities for individualized instruction, observation, practice, experimentation, and the development of a personal style are at the core of all of our adult art classes. Instructional projects vary throughout the year; adults who participated in our art classes continue to bring new insights and find new challenges in this series of programs.
