This FREE intermediate watercolor workshop is open to veterans, their families and the community and part of a series conducted by veterans made possible by a Veterans Initiative in the Arts Grant of the California Arts Council and in partnership with Farmer Veteran Coalition and Yolo County Veterans Services.
We begin on site in the open air by selecting a subject and laying the foundation-reviewing the principles and elements of design through discussion and demonstration. We will focus on the key elements-water, paper, brushes, paint-and how to contol and not control them. Creating drama and spontaneity through value, gorgeous color, and fluid transparency.
Bring watercolor supplies and paper. Table and chairs provided. Participants may display a watercolor painting they created in the workshop at the At Ease on the Farm reception on Saturday, May 13.
