F106 Winter 2019 Introduction to Watercoloring Art
Wednesdays, 11:50–1:15, Jan. 23–Feb. 13
Fairfax Lord of Life, Conference Room
Instructors: Suzanne Goldstein, Susann Hamilton
Class limit: 12
This class is for beginners only, who want to learn basic skills in watercolor art. We will discuss appropriate brushes, paints, and papers for watercolor painting. Artwork often will be finished outside of class. Participants will need tubes of watercolor paints in blue, yellow, red, payne’s grey, and brown, or a student set of watercolors; watercolor brushes in #4 detail brush, #8 round brush, and 1/2-inch (13 mm) flat brush; and 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper, either in a pad or a large single sheet of Arches paper. (We realize that there are cheaper brands of paper. While they are usable, they do not absorb the paint or the water as well.) You will also need a container for water and a paper plate or palette to mix colors. These supplies can be purchased at any AC Moore, Michaels, or Plaza Artist Materials at Pan Am Shopping Center in Fairfax. Please do not register for F108 Watercolor Painting if you sign up for this class.
