Painting with watercolor on canvas is life changing! No mat, no glass, no frame - and the best part, you can wash off your mistakes and start over! Who says watercolor is unforgiving?! We will practice spontaneous approaches to watercolor by having a sense of adventure and an open mind. Lots of water, splattering of paint, step by step instructions and demonstrations will give you confidence as you have fun and create paintings that you will be proud to hang on your wall. We will be trying some non-traditional methods using stamping, color sanding, and other textural elements. My goal is to provide an atmosphere where you can relax, have fun and learn by providing non-threatening exercises that will make you a better painter. We will paint one painting together, then if time allows, each student will paint one of their own choice. If you have no prior experience with drawing or painting, this class will be perfect for you. I can help you transfer your image to the canvas.
