Let’s Paint Under the Sea!
Gerri Tumblin, BA, TESOL, TEFL
In this one-time class, artists will paint a colorful and dreamy underwater scene as if they were swimming in the sea! #creative
This cool painting is a great way to use both watercolors and acrylic/tempera paint to achieve a new perspective from underwater. We will start by look at underwater images and talk about cool colors. We will look at sea animals and understand the shapes they take so artists can paint them easily. We will start with a watercolor wash of cool, ocean colors. I will lead artists in a step-by-step process to understand how to leave our sunlight “hole” and layer colors for a dreamy effect. Then...
My goal is for artists to have fun creating colorful artwork from a new perspective using a combination of art media they may not have tried and to continue to experiment on their own.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA and have enjoyed working with vibrant colors through markers, paints, and chalk pastels. My personal style is more abstract, graphic, and even impressionistic and this is reflected in my own artwork over the years. I worked with young learners for several years when I was in charge of a volunteer- lead art program that focused on art elements and the art masters. We did many different types of projects and used different media and techniques each month. Sharing these colorful and simple ideas with young artists is exciting and I often learn from them as well as they share their ideas and express themselves in new ways.
Homework OfferedThere’s no specific homework, but artists may want to try other designs and blend more colors for new compositions.
Assessments OfferedThroughout the class, learners will be encouraged to share their work to assess their progress and understanding. We will engage in respectful and relaxed conversation and they are always encouraged to ask questions as needed.
