What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

This watercolor workshop, using watercolor inks, is designed for adults of all artistic abilities. Inks are completely transparent and colors are easy to mix and flow beautifully. Wet on wet, wet on dry, hand-done type, and the use of resist will be demonstrated. 

The class approaches watercolor using graphic illustration with an emphasis on composition and cropping. Inspiration comes from lush fruits, veggies, berries, flowers, and images of landscapes, birds, sea life, and more. 

Participants are encouraged to develop their own style.

School Notes:
Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, while we are a Jewish community center, nothing about our art classes are religious and all are welcome in our building at all times.

Question from Anonymous
Do we bring our own supplies?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Thank you for your question. The supply list for the trial just includes a pad of paper. If the student is very unsure if they will continue or doesn't think they will have a use for paper after the class the instructor will have a small amount on hand. Hope this helps!
Question from Rachel S.
Hello! Does anyone know when the final (non-trial) class will be offered? Weekday? Weeknight?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Rachel! This is the non-trial class https://coursehorse.com/nyc/classes/art/painting/watercolor/watercolor-and-illustration, we really can't say when will it be offered again. The school is the one giving us the schedule and there's no update on that as of yet. You can add it to your wish-list so you can be notified via email when new updates are made on the website.

Great intro to watercolors. The instructor provided a lot of examples of technique and gave us a good flavor of what the longer series would be. I would recommend this trial class

Absolutely terrific...MARIKA so well organized..everything ready to go from the minute class started and she progressed in such a way (using wet on wet and offering explainations for how to connect so as to see the colors mixing or to place colored circles a bit apart so as not to mix colors) that as we moved from one project to another, she referred back to those earlier moments. She walked around many, many times and was always available to answer questions. It was a trial class and the follow up full course is at night. A couple of us have called the JCC raving about the class and we had other friends who would be interested in such a course also call or email asking that such a course be offered during the day....would be popular for older students.
