Watercolor Painting with Rosalie McCarthy


with Rosalie McCarthy       ADULTS
6 classes, Wednesdays Apr 26-Jun 7 (no class May 17)

Contrary to popular belief, watercolor is very forgiving. It  has a fluidity and transparency unlike any other medium. Prior to beginning a beautiful painting, you'll  be guided in sketching the subject (no prior drawing experience necessary). You'll learn glazing, brush loading, color mixing, paint lifting, and control techniques as you gradually develop your painting, allowing for adjustments along the way.

There will be ongoing individual guidance, instruction, and demonstrations in a supportive, non-intimidating, and fun atmosphere. Various papers, brushes, and equipment will be discussed together with helpful handouts to assist you on your painting journey. Beginners to advanced skill levels welcome. NOTE: if enrollment for this class is low, Rosalie may add watercolor registrants to her Friday class at the same time (students will be notified if this is the case).
