What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

Mixed Media: Flora and Landscape in Watercolor and Soft Pastel Ages 16+


Mixed media using watercolors and soft (dry) pastels offers wonderful ways to construct textural, 3D looking artworks, while enjoying the relaxing, meditative, therapeutic aspects of art-making. Explore fun, traditional and experimental ways to apply these materials to achieve interesting effects. We start with a paint-along demonstration, then branch into individual choices of subject. 

No prior experience or drawing ability necessary. 

Continuing students will work on their own projects with individual mentoring in developing their portfolios and styles.
