“Working in a Series in Watercolor” ~ Wednesdays, 10am-Noon, November 5 to December 17 (no classNov. 26).

Artists sometimes become interested in a particular subject and want to explore it artistically.  Working in a seriescan often lead to growth in skills and new discoveries.  Students in this class will pick a subject that interests them, such as water, cityscapes, architectural features, figures, plants, etc.  They will paint that subject in different ways, with different lighting, in various styles, using different color palettes or techniques, etc.  This class will helpstudents widen their painting perspective and approach.  Some watercolor experience recommended.
