This unique watercolor class is for the beginner or experienced student who would like to experiment more with watercolor paints.

Students will use watercolor paints in traditional ways with some fascinating twists to help achieve wonderful textures and nuances in their paintings. Such things as salt, plastic wrap, rice paper, sand, ice, and even liquid soap can produce surprising yet sophisticated results. Each student is prompted to explore and make notes on their experiments for further use in painting. Each student creates a small landscape using discoveries made in class.
