Beginning Watercolor II with Pam Bleakney
March 2, 9, 16, and 23, 2018
Please register online or call 386-676-3347
This class is designed primarily for students who have taken Pam Bleakney’s “Beginning, Beginning, Watercolor” class or students with a basic knowledge of watercolor. The class is for students still considered beginners with a burning desire to paint. Experience the thrill of the pigment and water coming together in your creation. I’ll demo and you can do my lessons or start creating your own compositions. My goal is to instill a love of watercolor in each of you and add another step to your artistic journey. By the end of this session we should be planning our paintings and starting to work from our own photos or better still, our imaginations. We will do thumbnails, value sketches and select our palette. Students are responsible for all supplies; please see supply list below. Open to participants 16 and older. Cost: $60 (members) / $67 (future members)
Watercolor pad, 140lb, cold press, 6” x 9”, no bigger than 9” x 12”

If you want to buy better watercolor paint – great! (Windsor and Newton, Holbein, Da Vinci, or M. Graham)
