Description

Class Experience

Students will gain a better understanding of color theory and learn various techniques which will allow them to have the confidence and skills to create their own works of watercolor art in the future. Watercolor techniques will include: wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry, taping down paper, properly hydrating your watercolor paint, color mixing and layering. 
This supply list includes recommendations and brands I like, as well as everyday objects you can find around the house.

WATERCOLOR PAINT 
*We will be mixing to create our own colors using only the primary colors: RED, BLUE, and YELLOW.
*If you get a paint set with more colors that is fine! But students will be encouraged to practice mixing with only the primary colors.
*I recommend getting paint that comes in tubes such as the Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolor Paints. They are much higher quality than paint palettes and a little bit goes a long ways. You can expect to spend around a total $15 for three 5ml tubes: 
               Prussian Blue: https://www.dickblick.com/items/winsor-newton-professional-watercolor-prussian-blue-5-ml-tube/
               Scarlet Lake (Red): https://www.dickblick.com/items/winsor-newton-professional-watercolor-scarlet-lake-5-ml-tube/
               Lemon Yellow Deep: https://www.dickblick.com/items/winsor-newton-professional-watercolor-lemon-yellow-deep-5-ml-tube/

**Cheaper lower quality option, but with built in paint palette for mixing >>> https://www.amazon.com/Prang-Watercolor-Assorted-Refillable-16000/dp/B001E6EUS2/
   
WATERCOLOR PAINT PALETTE
*This is what we will use to mix colors! A plate or tupperware lid works fine too, however I like these little guys (see below) because they have individual little wells for squeezing tubes of paint into. I will demonstrate before class how to properly set up the paint palette.
              Paint palette for ~$5: https://www.dickblick.com/products/masters-international-folding-watercolor-palette/?clickTracking=true&wmcp=pla&wmcid=items&wmckw=00067-1001&gclid=CjwKCAjwjdOIBhA_EiwAHz8xm8rH-I3bScFADtjDydNsqmNgQZ0LPqt5j0Sq05F7CX8Yy4H7F66LwRoChz4QAvD_BwE

WATERCOLOR PAINT BRUSH
*I recommend round tips ones, they're great for both wide brush strokes and fine lines. 
*Sizes #2-10 will work great, nothing smaller or larger is necessary. 
           >>>https://www.amazon.com/Watercolor-Brushes-Different-Watercolors-Acrylics/dp/B0838TZKF1

WATERCOLOR PAPER
*8x10 is a good size, nothing larger than 11x14
*This is the brand I like to use! High quality 12 sheet pad for less than $10:
          Fabriano's 140 lb. Cold Press 12-Sheet Pad size 9X12 In
          https://www.jerrysartarama.com/fabriano-studio-watercolor-paper-pads

- cup for water
