This class is for beginners only, who want to learn basic skills of sketching and watercolor art. We will discuss pencil types and papers used to produce lines, shapes, and textures in perspective, and appropriate brushes, paints and papers for watercolor painting. Artwork often will be finished outside of class. Participants will need drawing pencils: numbers 2B, 4B, 5B, 6B, 7B, or 8B, and 2H, 3H, or 4H; a sketching pad of 80 lb. weight; drawing paper; kneadable erasers (one small and one large stump); and a small scrap of sandpaper. (Watercolor supplies will be discussed at the first class.) Please do not register for the F107 Drawing and Sketching Workshop or F112 Watercolor Painting if you register for this class. Suzanne Goldstein is a retired math teacher and a longtime attendee of OLLI sketching and watercolor classes, as well as facilitator of the Annex Art Club. Susann Hamilton is a retired association executive who has been an OLLI instructor of Beginning Sketching.
