Instructor: Tristin Miller
Thursdays at 11a - 130p
23 March - 11 May, 2017
Note: Registration for this class ends Sunday, 19 March at 11.59p.
The emphasis of this eight-week study will be on how to build a creative habit through the exploration of wet media and drawing. Students will be given a thorough introduction to watercolors, the basics of drawing from observation, and the principals of color theory. Keeping a regular sketchbook will be a major part of the curriculum and very helpful in aiding the student's success in the classroom. Some experience in drawing from observation and painting is helpful, but not required.
***Current students may take this as a continuing course, keeping in mind that some information from the previous session will be repeated to new students. The instructor will make all efforts to individualize instruction to each student's working level. We believe that all educational experiences are opportunities for growth.
