Experimental Watercolor (five-session workshop)
Linking abstraction to reality can be simultaneously one of the most exhilarating, yet perplexing forms of expression. In this highly energetic workshop learn to abandon fears and truly embrace the experimentation of what water based mediums can do. You will discover the joy in relinquishing control through guided drawing and painting exercises that transition through modes of inspiration and thought process.
This is an in-person class which will take place in our building with strict social distancing protocols and reduced student capacity. Please see our COVID-19 community safety policies.
