Exploring Watercolor with C. Tanner Jensen

Musical Freestyle by C. Tanner Jensen

Musical Freestyle by C. Tanner Jensen

Have you ever thought you would like to try watercolor painting? If yes, this class is for you.

Do you love watercolor, but are frustrated with how to use it? Again, this class is for you!

You will be led through a series of watercolor exercises that are understandable and build on each other, giving you an understanding of the media and how to control it. Color mixing, techniques to create texture, and glazing are topic that will be demonstrated and explored.

All materials are included. No drawing or painting experience is necessary.

Participants should dress comfortably. While watercolor is not a particularly messy media it is staining and may damage clothing. Please choose accordingly.

10:00 am to 4:00 pm with an hour lunch break.

$25.00 Materials fee + $40.00 Class fee
