Description

Class Experience

Students will 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 might include: wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry, taping down paper, properly hydrating your watercolor paint, color mixing and layering, and more. 
I have been painting since I was a wee little lass. When not painting, I work as a graphic designer for my local town, fighting bad design and comic sans monsters (a.ka., designing digital and print material for cultural arts programs and exhibitions), and before my superhero work as a graphic designer, I was an educator at a children's science museum working with a team of expert scientists and educators to teach everything from astronomy to wildlife conservation. 
This supply list includes recommendations and brands I like, as well as everyday objects you can find around the house. I believe in using what you've got - no need to break the bank! 🎨WATERCOLOR PAINT SET with red, yellow, blue, black, and white (more colors are fine too): I recommend a paint palette, higher quality paint that comes in tubes can get extra messy and it's more difficult to measure out an appropriate amount. Plus you've got a built in palette for mixing colors. You can also use a Tupperware lid or plate for mixing paint. >>> https://www.amazon.com/Prang-Watercolor-Assorted-Refillable-16000/dp/B001E6EUS2/ 🖌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 >>>https://www.jerrysartarama.com/canson-xl-watercolor-pads 🌈ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: - pencil - cup for water - paper towel - circular object such as a cup, bowl, etc. - painters tape (for taping down paper) - crayons - salt - table that can get messy - safe, flat area for drying artwork
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
