Description

[Ages 16-Adult]

Instructor: Tristin Miller


Watercolor Basics

The emphasis of this class 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.
