Watercolor Workshop with Theresa Somaio 

Wednesdays 10am - 12 pm, July 6 - August 3, 2022

In this class we will explore the medium of watercolor and how to use it creatively and with confidence.  We will discuss watercolor materials and techniques, such as controlling water flow and brush effects.  We will discuss color mixing, washes and glazes, resist, negative painting, wet-on-wet, and dry brush.  Additionally, general aspects of painting and drawing, such as composition, perspective, line, value and texture will be considered as we develop original paintings. We will paint from still lifes, photographs and our imagination. Classes will consist of brief explanations or demonstrations followed by a painting session. Watercolor is versatile and can be used to create highly detailed images or loose splashes of colors. Remember that what your painting looks like is always up to you. Hopefully at the end of the class you will have gained a deeper understanding of watercolor and be inspired to express your ideas and personal style.

Let the journey begin and let it be fun!
