Watercolor 101

Watercolor made easy! In just two Sunday sessions, you can learn the tips and tricks to working with this rewarding medium, using the Walters' collection as inspiration. We'll begin with some drawing basics to get you comfortable with observations, then lead you through a series of painting exercises, so you can practice the techniques before creating your own masterpiece. This beginner and intermediate course with local artist Danamarie Hosler will provide the fundamental skills you can build on as you hone your practice of watercolor painting for lifelong enjoyment and artistic expression.
