Instructor: Jody Holbert
In this three-hour class, adult students of all abilities will have the perfect opportunity to develop or refresh skills, experiment with watercolor processes, and become comfortable with completing a watercolor painting. Participants will learn 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. Exhibition Focus: Magical and Real: Henriette Wyeth and Peter Hurd
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 changing exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of artists, art forms, and processes. 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; most students attend for consecutive sessions. Adult students may choose to exhibit their work in the Education Gallery in June.
